The ruins of Moinamoti, located near the town of Comilla, Bangladesh, are from 8th-11th centuries AD. There are numerous ruins of Buddhist Monasteries around the place, which are categorized as 'Bihars' (বিহার) (there are other categories of Buddhist monasteries depending on their layout and architecture). Among the Bihars at Moinamoti, the most notable are Shalban Bihar (শালবন বিহার) -- which is the most well-preserved of them all, Ananda Bihar (আনন্দ বিহার), etc. Another ruin called 'Kotila Mura' (কোটিলা মুড়া) atop a small hillock consists of three round pillars, which signify Buddha (বুদ্ধ), Dhamma (ধম্ম), and Sangha (সঙ্ঘ).

Moinamoti also has a Cemetery from the World War II era, which is the resting place of soldiers who lost their lives in the region fighting against Japanese aggression. Many Japanese soldiers are also buried here. The cemetery is now taken care of by the British Council, Dhaka (reference needed).
