The district town of Bogra is situated beside the Korotoa. The town was upgraded to a district town in 1850. The name of the district has been given after the name of Sultan Nasiruddin Bogra Khan, the second son of Giasuddin Balban, the Sultan of Delhi from 1281 to 1290.

Bogra is famous for the "doi"(curd), specially the "doi" from the sherpur of bogra. If you visit this district, don't miss the opportunity to have some "doi". This district is most developed from the Northern part of the country. This district is well known for the archaeological heritage Mahasthangarh.
