My Home Town
The name of my home town is Kishoregonj. It is a district headquarters and is only 145 kilometers north-east of Dhaka. The name Kishoreganj came from an old landlord known as Brojakishore Pramanik or Nandakishore Pramanik.
The district consists of 8 municipalities, 13 upazilas, 110 unions and 1794 villages. The area of the Kishoreganj town is 19.57 square kilometers. The river Narasunda flows across the town. There are many important places in and around this small town. We can see the largest Eid ground known as Solakia Eid ground, the Pagla Mosque and the well known Govt Gurudayal College here. If we go out of this town, we can see the fort of Isah Khan, at Jangal Bari, the Shah Muhammad Mosque at Egaroshindhur and the Shiva temple of Chandrabati on the bank of Fuleshwari river.
