Dharma Sagor

Type: Lake
Contributed By: Nayeem


Dharma Sagor is a large pond or dighi located in Comilla town with an area of 9.38 hectare. This Dighi was excavated by Maharaj Dharma Manikya of Tripura (1714-1732) to meet the demand for water of local people. Initially, an island was there at the middle of the dighi. Comilla Stadium and Comilla Zilla School are now located on the eastern bank of the dighi.

On the other hand, Comilla Municipal Park, Rani Kutir and kazi Nazrul Islam memorial hall are on the north and Raj Devi Maternity and a Childcare Center are situated on the southeast of Dharma Sagar. These historical marks made this dighi an attractive tourist spot. This spot is visited by migratory birds in winter as well.

Dharma Sagar is a man-made pond on the heart of the city of Comilla. It is a century old pond dug by the Tripura’s King Dharma Manikya I in 1458. The pond is used for fish cultivation. There is a park beside the pond. Local residents gather and enjoy fresh air and beautiful panorama of the pond. Pavement of sides of the pond make a long pathway for walking that are enjoyed on a daily basis by local community residents.
