The broken wall and the black tombs are the main elements of the memorial. Rayer Bazar Boddhobhumi has changed a lot since the 19th century. “The whole area is overcrowded.” Most of the houses in Rayer Bazaar are mainly two storied and all of the houses are pretty much old. The place isn’t the same as it was during the Mughal period but the ancient old pottery tradition is still present there.
