The city of mosques

Situated on the banks of the Buriganga River, Dhaka is a bustling and vibrant metropolis with an estimated population of 15 million. It covers an area of 360 square kilometres and is known as the City of Mosques, due to its many places of worship.

Dhaka is a fast growing city, with the UN having predicted it could be home to more than 20 million people by 2025.

The city dates back to the 7th century and became an important part of the Mughal Empire in the 1600s, when it was known as Jahangir Nagar.

However, much of the metropolis as it stands today was developed under British rule during the 19th century, before Dhaka became the administrative centre of East Pakistan and then capital of the newly independent Bangladesh.

Its streets witnessed major turmoil following the partition of India in 1947, when a large proportion of the Hindu population left for India and the city received an influx of Muslims.
