Bangladesh River Map | Bangladesh Map

Bangladesh is one of the smallest nations in the world and it is said to have been born twice – once as East Pakistan and once as Bangladesh. Historically described as ‘Golden Bengal’ for its agricultural affluence, the country had to struggle, post its independence in 1971, to get political and economic stability. Bangladesh is a nation closely linked with its river system and its geography & culture is influenced by the riverine delta system. Bangladesh River Map features about 700 rivers including tributaries, which have a total length of about 24,140 km.

Major Rivers of Bangladesh

Bangladesh has predominantly four major river systems – (1) the Brahmaputra-Jamuna, (2) the Ganges-Padma, (3) the Surma-Meghna, and (4) the Chittagong Region river system. However, the Brahmaputra is the 22nd longest (2,850 km) and the Ganges is the 30th longest (2,510 km) river in the world.

The Brahmaputra River is one of the greatest in Asia and the longest to pass through Bangladesh, covering a length of 1,802 miles, and also cutting across India, Bhutan, and China. The River Meghna hails from the convergence of the Surma and Kushiyara Rivers. Considered as one of the most important rivers in Bangladesh, it measures 164 miles and fans out of the Bay of Bengal.

Source the of all rivers of Bangladesh is Himalayan. Its country and ancient nation thrive from the Himalayas to the Bay of Bengal. In some places, such as Patuakhali, Barisal, and Sundarbans area the watercourses are so plentiful that they form a veritable maze. The watercourses of the country are obviously not evenly distributed. They increase in numbers and size from the northwest of the northern region to the southeast of the southern region.
