Flow of Buriganga conducts life

Dhaka City MapEarly urbanization of Dhaka started on the Northern bank of Buringanga River from Buddhist period, since 7th centuries AD. Since then this city grown up as a mega city of today through a long struggle. we find the fate of this city sometimes as an important trading center or as a capital. Dhaka’s that past unstable status now firmly stable as the capital of independent Bangladesh. Present modern mega city of Bangladesh, Dhaka is heading off to its future with above 400 years of legacy. Even today that legacy's has been reflecting from the modern era's Buriganga River. Buriganga River used to be easy access of Dhaka to the ancient maritime powers and merchant mariners.That why Buringanga in course of time become a busiest harbor. Impact of this river as time passed make Dhaka as an important city though sometimes fate had been fluctuating. Even today fascinating riverside life and their present activities portray of an ancient affluent city in our mind. Today when still we see dozen of boats criss-cross the water carrying everything, while hundred ferries transport people far reaches corners of the country through this river then intangible history become tangible. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
