Dhaka's Lost Paradise

While Dhaka was losing its splendour after the fall of Mughal Empire, the local zamindars and nawabs under British rule tried to revive its past splendour as the city of gardens. Dhaka's Baldha Garden is one of the most magnificent examples of this beautification effort. Still it is one of the richest botanical gardens of this subcontinent that spans 3.15 acres of land and boasts of eighteen thousand plant specimens of eight hundred different species. It has some of the rarest species of plants that can be found nowhere else in Bangladesh or even in this subcontinent.

Nature Quest: Courtship pageant in Tangua

Tangua haor is a mini ocean during monsoon. But in winter much of the water is gone and the haor turns into a maze of interconnected wetlands called beels. Once away from the muddy shores overgrown with reeds, one can see through the clear beel water a magnificent green carpet of plants at the bottom. This garden, hidden underneath the water, is visited by thousands of ducks during the winter months every year.
