The place

The Sadarghat Ship Terminal in Dhaka, Bangladesh is located in the southern part of the city, on the banks of the Buriganga River. This is one of the world's largest river terminals, servicing more than 200 large and smaller vessels daily. According to some sources, around 50,000 people use its services each day.

The term "Sadarghat" translates to "City Wharf". It was originally built as a landing place for boats, launches, and ships coming to Dhaka from other places. However, large vessels can no longer use it due to the shoaling of the river bed entry and an overall decrease in the capacity of the inland waterways.


Hundreds of boats and launches arrive at and depart from Sadarghat, facilitating communication mostly with the southern districts. Barges carrying cargoes also use Sadarghat as a point of landing and departure. Additionally, Sadarghat has a floating market for fruits and vegetables. The terminal is busy with steamers carrying passengers to districts and regional cities such as Khulna. Many spots of Dhaka city are connected to Sadarghat by a road running parallel to the river.

Travel to Bangladesh

My program and itinerary in Bangladesh resulted from my month-long trip around the country. I have selected some of the most exciting places that will reveal to you the authentic beauty of this country. Bangladesh has almost no landmarks or monuments of global or even local scale. However, the whole country is one significant landmark. People travel to Bangladesh for the authenticity that still exists in most parts of the country.
