Sir J.C. Bose Complex

Type: Park
Contributed By: Nayeem


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.

How to go

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.

How To Reach: Munshiganj District

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.

Where to Stay

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.
