Mahasthangarh is one of the earliest urban archaeological sites so far discovered in Bangladesh. The village Mahasthan in Shibganj thana of Bogra District contains the remains of an ancient city, called Pundranagara or Paundravardhanapura in the territory of Pundravardhana. A limestone slab bearing six lines in Prakrit in Brahmi script recording a land grant, discovered in 1931, dates Mahasthangarh to at least the 3rd century BC; the fortified area was in use until the 8th century AD. Mahasthan means a place that garh means fort. Mahasthan was first mentioned in a Sanskrit text of the 13th century entitled Vallalcharita, it is mentioned in an anonymous text Karatoya mahatmya, circumstantially placed in 12th–13th century. The same text mentions two more names to mean the same place – Pundrakshetra, land of the Pundras, Pundranagara, city of the Pundras. In 1685, an administrative decree mentioned the place as Mastangarh, a mixture of Sanskrit and Persian meaning fortified place of an auspicious personage.

Subsequent discoveries have confirmed that the earlier name was Pundranagara or Paundravardhanapura, that the present name of Mahasthangarh is of origin. Mahasthangarh, the ancient capital of Pundravardhana is located 11 km north of Bogra on the Bogra-Rangpur highway, with a feeder road leading to Jahajghata and site museum. Buses are available for Bogra from Dhaka and take 4½ hours for the journey via Bangabandhu Jamuna Bridge across the Jamuna River. Buses are available from Bogra to Mahasthangarh. Rickshaws are available for local movement. Hired transport is available at Dhaka/ Bogra. Accommodation is available at Bogra; when travelling in a hired car, one can return to Dhaka the same day, unless somebody has a plan to visit Somapura Mahavihara at Paharpur in the district of Naogaon and other places, or engage in a detailed study. It is believed that the location for the city in the area was decided upon because it is one of the highest areas in Bangladesh; the land in the region is 36 metres above sea level, whereas Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, is around 6 metres above sea level.

Another reason for choosing this place was the position and size of the Karatoya, which as as in the 13th century was three times wider than Ganges. Mahasthangarh stands on the red soil of the Barind Tract, elevated within the alluvium area; the elevation of 15 to 25 metres above the surrounding areas makes it a flood free physiographic unit. Several personalities contributed to the identification of the ruins at Mahasthangarh. Francis Buchanan Hamilton was the first to locate and visit Mahasthangarh in 1808, C. J. O'Donnell, E. V. Westmacott, Beveridge followed. Alexander Cunningham was the first to identify the place as the capital of Pundravardhana, he visited the site in 1879. The citadel, the fortified heart of the ancient city, is rectangular in plan, measuring 1.523 kilometres long from north to south, 1.371 kilometres from east to west, with high and wide ramparts in all its wings. Area of the citadel is 185 ha; the Karatoya, once a mighty river but now a small stream, flows on its east. Till the 1920s, when excavations started, the inside of the citadel was higher than the surrounding areas by over 4 metres and was dotted with several straggling elevated pieces of land.

The rampart looked like a jungle clad mud rampart with forced openings at several points. The rampart was 11–13 metres higher than the surrounding area. At its south-east corner stood a mazhar. A day mosque was there. At present there are structural vestiges inside the fortifications. Of these a few of note are: Jiat Kunda, Mankalir Dhap, Parasuramer Basgriha, Bairagir Bhita, Khodar Pathar Bhita, Munir Ghon. There are some gateways at different points: Kata Duar, Dorab Shah Toran, Burir Fatak, Tamra Dawaza At the north-eastern corner there is a flight of steps that goes by the name of Jahajghata. A little beyond Jahajghata and on the banks of the Karatoya is Govinda Bhita. In front of it is the site museum, displaying some of the representative findings. Beside it is a rest house. Besides the fortified area, there are around a hundred mounds spread over an area with a radius of 9 km.. Excavated mounds: Gobhindo Bhita, a temple close to the north-eastern corner of the citadel Khulnar Dhap, a temple 1 km north of the citadel Mangalkot, a temple 400m south of Khulnar Dhap Godaibari Dhap, a temple 1 km south of Khulnar Dhap Totaram Panditer Dhap, a monastery 4 km north-west of the citadel Noropotir Dhap, a group of monasteries 1 km north-west of Totaram Ponditer Dhap Gokul Medh, a temple 3 km south of the citadel Shkonder Dhap, a temple 2 km south-east of Gokul MedhMajor unexcavated mounds: Shiladebir Ghat Chunoru Dighi Dhap Kaibilki Dhap Juraintala Poroshuramer Shobhabati Balai Dhap Prochir Dhibi Kanchir Hari Dhibi Lohonar Dhap Khujar Dhap Doshatina Dhap Dhoniker Dhap Mondirir Dorgah Bishmordana Dhibi Malinar Dhap Malpukuria Dhap Jogir Dhap Podmobhatir Dhap Kanai Dhap Dulu Mojhir Bhita Podda Debhir Bhita Rastala Dhap Shoshitola Dhap Dhonbandhor Dhap Chader Dhap
