View from Bandura bridge where it segregated.

ছোট বেলায় বইতে পড়েছিলাম ইছামতি নদীর কথা... ঢাকার অদূরে গেলাম ইছামতি নদী দেখতে... এই নদী আর বইয়ের নদী এক কিনা সেইটা একটু সংশয়পূর্ণ হয়ে গেল... কারণ, ইছামতি নামে একটা নদী আছে যেইটা বাংলাদেশ ভারতের সীমানার মাঝ বরাবর বয়ে চলেছে... সে যাই হউক... আজকে ঢাকার নবাবগঞ্জের ইছামতি নদীর কিছু ছবি দিয়ে দিলাম...

The river I am talking about is named Ichhamoti(ইছামতি নদী), located at the Nawabganj(নবাবগঞ্জ) of Dhaka. I have went to Bandura(বন্দুরা) to explore the Jamidar bari(জমিদার বাড়ী) of Kolakola(কলাকোপা) and BoktNogor(বক্তনগর). Both the archaic mansions are situated beside the Ichhamoti river(ইছামতি নদী).

This is a small river and being near to Dhaka, the water of the river having a bit dart. Lot of brick factories established at the bank of the river for easier transportation and water supply. Every day lot of trawlers used to carry sand and other goods over this river.

Mela at the river bank.

Ichhamoti river is created from the river Dhaleswari(ধলেশ্বরী). Near the Bandura bazar(বন্দুরা বাজার), the river separated into two branches. Later each of those joined with the massive river Padma(পদ্মা). Also, at several places, few canals were generated from the river, and all of those later joined with the river Padma(পদ্মা).

I'd love to have a boat journey during rainy season over this river. This can be started from the Dhalaswari(ধলেশ্বরী) and ends at Padma(পদ্মা).
