Historic Panam City, Sonargaon

Sonargaon (Bengali: সোনারগাঁও; meaning City of Gold) was a historic administrative, commercial and maritime center in Bengal. Situated at the center of the Ganges delta, near the old course of the Brahmaputra River, it was the seat of the medieval Muslim rulers and governors of eastern Bengal. The area is located near the modern industrial river port of Narayanganj in Bangladesh.

Panam City was established in the late 19th century as a trading center of cotton fabrics during British rule. Hindu cloth merchants built their residential houses following colonial style with inspiration derived from European sources. Today this area is protected under the department of archaeology of Bangladesh.

日本家屋の魅力はたくさんあると思うが、とりわけ僕が好ましく思うのは「光」の回り具合である。
大きなお屋敷は別だが、一般的な長屋などの民家は、構造上欧米の家屋のように窓を大きく取れない。
従って室内は暗くなるのだけど、その仄暗さに障子や磨りガラスなどを通して差し込む光が、数値上の照度では決して高い物ではないと思うが、実に柔らかく美しいのである。

ただ、まァ、寒かったり暑かったりするのは仕方がないのだけど …。
