The tour will continue to Nayarhat, where you will leave the vehicle and take a short boat journey to Kakran. Here most villagers are engaged in the pottery trade. The use of clay pots and utensils is slowly disappearing, posing a threat to the traditional livelihood of these skilled artisans.  
Metal craft Village:
Dhamrai is in a far suburb of Dhaka. Home to a small Hindu community, Dhamrai is known for its traditional metal craft.
