Sir J.C. Bose Complex located at Rarikhal, Dhaka-Dohar Highway, Sreenagar, Munshiganj. Sir Jagadish Chandra Bose (30 November 1858 – 23 November 1937) was a Bengali polymath, physicist, biologist, botanist, archaeologist, as well as an early writer of science fiction. He pioneered the investigation of radio and microwave optics, made very significant contributions to plant science, and laid the foundations of experimental science in the Indian subcontinent. He is sometimes considered the father of Bengali science fiction.
Born in Mymensingh- “Bengal Presidency” during the British Raj that means the Bikrampur (now in Munshiganj, Dhaka). His early life was started in Kolkata, but his paternal house is still there in Rarikhal, Sreenagar, Munshiganj.
Now, his birthplace has turned into a park like memorial complex. We’ve found this place as a perfect place for day out with your family but not for any science awareness school visit.
If you want to get there at the Complex, It would be better to ride on a Bus moving toward Mawa/Sreenagar. On the way to Sreenagar make sure that you confirm the helper of your bus to slow down at Rarikhal Bus Stop.
There are several transport is available from Dhaka to Munshiganj. The bus services are “Nayan Paribahan”, “Dighir par Paribahan” and “Dhaka Transport”, all of the buses used to start from “Gulistan” of Dhaka. It will cost you 60-80 taka, and will require 1 hrs to 2 hrs bus journey depending upon the road traffic.
Also you can hire CNG auto rickshaw from the “Postogola”, and it will take you 250-350 to take you at Muktarpur bridge. Remember, if you are hiring CNG, make sure who will provide the toll of the bridge. For you information, the toll fee is 20 taka. So negotiate with the driver of CNG about who will provide the toll.
Though the district is just beside the Dhaka, still its hard to find a suitable hotel from the district. The main reason, may be people from dhaka used to come this place for a single day trip. But anyway, if you need to stay at Munshiganj town, that case I’ll suggest you to stay at “Hotel Comfort” this one is the best from the town. Also you there is another one which is “Hotel three star international”. But the quality of the rooms of this hotel is not that much good. For both cases, it will take 100-700 taka per night depending upon the room.

Natore DC Park is located near Natore Children Park in the Rajshahi-Bogra Highway, inaugurated in 1st January 2006. The inaugurator of this aesthetic concept was Mr. Mohammad Ilias Hossain, the Collector, District Magistrate and District Commissioner of Natore. The main intention behind building this park was to beautify and redecorate the District Commissioner’s Office, but it has been a tourist attraction these days. Apart from that attractive park, there is a lake and fountain yard in between the park and main road. This lake was inaugurated in 16th September, 2013 by Mr. Zafar Ullah, The Deputy Commissioner of Natore District.
Each day, many of the inhabitants come to this lovely environment to enjoy their leisure time with family and friends in the yard.

The Bangabandhu Jamuna Eco Park in Sirajganj, which could become a lucrative spot pulling in local and foreign tourists, has been in a sorry state for years. The park, about 125 kilometres north-west of Dhaka, has over 50 varieties of timber, fruit and medicinal trees and a zoo, but fails to draw many tourists due to a lack of necessary facilities and publicity, said visitors and officials concerned.
The 600-acre park on the western end of Jamuna bridge at Soydabad in the district was opened to public in 2008, but the authorities have not taken any initiatives to attract tourists. During a recent visit, this correspondent found the park in a state of neglect, with only a handful of visitors. The park has a small zoo with only four cages that accommodate only two sick porcupines and a few monkeys and hares.
Seven spotted deer were released into the park when it was opened, and their numbers redoubled in five years. But the animals have been suffering due to a severe shortage of drinking water, with no ponds dug in the forest, sources said. Ibrahim Khalil, in-charge of the park’s wildlife and c, said there were two peacocks in the park, but they were shifted to Dhaka after they fell sick a few months ago. “Visitors, especially children, love to see animals and birds. Therefore, more of these creatures could be brought to the zoo,” Khalil said, adding the government could earn huge revenues from the park if it was taken care of.

In Wari, exactly at "Tati Bazar Mor (তাঁতি বাজার মোড়)", there is a lovely place inside a boundary which is called "Nogore Nishorgo". This initiative had been taken by the Bangladesh government as a process of embellishment the Dhaka City. It is hard to find any beauty at this Dhaka city, almost no sign of green. Authority just wanted to give some green flavor by creating some artificial structures of this park.
