I see. So with the ghosts of the B&IL as well as the Boks improving, you're now afraid your backsides will be handed to you.

Colonial vestiges, yes, but mostly from the Mughals. One of my Iranian friends asked me why so many cities in Bangladesh end in the suffix "-pur" which is Persian for "town"...I didn't know it was Persian until he told me...its so ubiquitous I thought it was Bengali, lol. So I told him we had a lot of Persians come through over the centuries the most notable being of course the Mughals. But yes, Mirpur, Jagganathpur, Meherpur...lots of purs in Bangladesh.
As far as British vestiges we have of course the driving on the left thing and cricket, lol. We have the education system, parliamentary system of gov.
The only town I can think of is the small town of Cox's Bazar near the border with Myanmar, named after a Hiram Cox. There is also St Martin's island near Cox's Bazar, both of which are big tourist attractions in Bangladesh.
