Khulna

A lovely town with a large Hindu population, Khulna boasts more Indian than Bangladesh culture and is situated near several historic sites.

Khulna is an old river port located on the Rupsha River. It is an important hub of Bangladeshi industry and hosts many national companies. It is served by Port of Mongla, the second largest seaport in the country. It is also one of the two principal naval command centres of the Bangladesh Navy. Navy base BNS Titumir is located in the city. A colonial steamboat service, including the fleet Tern, Osrich and Lepcha, continues to operate on the river route to the city.
