Dhaka, formerly Dacca, is the capital and largest city of Bangladesh. It is located in the geographic center of the country in the great deltaic region of the Ganges and Brahmaputra rivers.Dhaka was founded during the 10th century. It served as the Mogul capital of Bengal from 1608 to 1704 and was a trading center for British, French, and Dutch interests before coming under British rule in 1765. In 1905 it was again named the capital of Bengal, and in 1956 it became the capital of East Pakistan.
Dhaka is well connected with the important cities and towns of Bangladesh by regular bus and train services run by both state owned and private operators. In addition, there are many routes covered by the meandering waterways of Bangladesh. One of the most enjoyable ‘steamer’ journeys is the “Rocket” Service between Dhaka and Khulna, the third largest commercial centre of the country.
Places of Interest
Suhrawardy Uddyan : At a stones throw from Dhaka Sheraton Hotel is the Suhrawardy Uddyan, formerly known as the Race Course, the popular park of the city. It is here that the oath for independence of Bangladesh was taken on the 7th March 1971 and curiously enough again it is here that the commander of the occupation forces surrendered on the 16th December 1971.
Shishu Park : The Child Education & Recreation Park is located in a corner of the Suhrawardy Uddyan.
Central Shahid Minar : This monument is the symbol of Bangladesh Nationalism. It was built to commemorate the martyrs of historic Language Movement of 1952. Although this movement was apparently for the recognition of Bangla as one of the state languages of the then Pakistan, it was in fact, the first outburst of popular feelings against the unpopular and autocratic government. All subsequent movements in Bangladesh leading to her independence in 1971, owe their origin to this movement and, therefore, this monument has become a place of pilgrimage for millions of Bangladeshis.
Banga Bbaban : Tourists can have an external view of Banga Bhaban, the official residence of the Head of the State – the President.
Lalbagh Fort : The Fort of Aurangabad, popularly known as the Lalbagh Fort, was built in 1678 A.D. by Prince Mohammed Azam, son of the Mughal Emperor Aurangazeb, who was then the Viceroy of Bengal.
