Bangladesh Dhaka city [13:48]
Dhaka City Dhaka (ঢাকা, formerly spelled Dacca, named Jahangir-nagar during Mughal era) is the capital of Bangladesh. It is a mega city and one of the major cities of South Asia. Located on the banks of the Buriganga River, had a population of over 16 million in 2011. It is the 9th largest city in the world and also 28th among the most densely populated cities in the world. Dhaka is known as the City of Mosques and with 400000 cycle rickshaws running on its streets every day, the city is also described as the Rickshaw Capital of the World. Under Mughal rule in the 17th century, the city was known as Jahangir Nagar. The modern city, however, was developed chiefly under British rule in the 19th century, and became the second-largest city in Bengal. After the Partition of Bengal in 1905, Dhaka became the capital of the new province of Eastern Bengal and Assam but lost its status as a provincial capital again after the partition was annulled in 1911. After the partition of India in 1947, Dhaka became the administrative capital of East Pakistan, and later, in 1971, the capital of an independent Bangladesh. Modern Dhaka is the center of political, cultural and economic life in Bangladesh. Dhaka suffers from urban problems such as pollution and overpopulation. The city is attracting large foreign investments and greater volumes of commerce and trade.

Dhaka, Bangladesh (Part 23) Slideshow Series [02:04]

Dhaka is the heart of all of the commotion with all the hustle and bustle one might expect along with very pleasant, kind and warm-hearted locals. This is a 25 part slideshow series showcasing Dhaka, Bangladesh. Dhaka is more than just a city, it is a giant whirlpool that sucks in anything and anyone foolish enough to come within its furious grasp. Around and around it sends them, like some wildly spinning fairground ride bursting with energy. Millions of individual pursuits constantly churn together into a frenzy of collective activity -- it is an urban melting pot bubbling over. Nothing seems to stand still. Even the art moves, paraded on the back of the city's sea of 600, 000-plus rickshaws, which throb with colour and restlessness even when gridlocked. It doesn't matter how many times you experience this city, the sensation of being utterly overwhelmed is always the same. Sights and experiences come at you so thick and fast that it would take a lifetime to know this mega-city's every mood. A day spent alternating between the filthy riverbanks of Old Dhaka and the swish restaurants of Gulshan is a day spent seeing the haves and have-nots of the world in crystal clarity. We can't guarantee you'll fall for Dhaka's many charms, but sooner or later you will start to move to its beat and when that happens Dhaka stops being a terrifying ride and starts becoming a cauldron of art and ...
