Dhaka Division (Bengali: ঢাকা বিভাগ, Ḑhaka Bibhag) is an administrative division within Bangladesh. The capital and largest city is Dhaka. The Division as constituted prior to 2015 covered an area of 31,051 km², and had a population of 47,424,418 at the 2011 Census. However, following the separation of the new Mymensingh Division in 2015, the area has been reduced to 20,508.8 km² with a population at the 2011 Census of 36,433,505.
Densely populated and humming with activity at all hours, Dhaka is a city of contrasts between old and new, rich and poor, industry and folk. From the concrete National Parliament House and ultramodern Bashundhara City, the largest shopping mall in South Asia, to the 17th Century Lalbagh Fort and the open markets along the city's side streets, these contrasts vividly shape the city. Visit the many mosques, temples and museums for a taste of Bengali culture and history.
