Mongla Port

Mongla Port is the southwest region of Bangladesh. It is the second largest sea port and is located 48 kilometres on the south from Khulna town. When the sea port was founded on December 1, 1950, it was known as Chalna. This is located on the confluence of the Pashur River and the Mongla River. In 1950 the British merchant ship “The City of Lions” plied through the Sundarbans and cast an anchor for the first time at a place known as Joymonir Pole. Later on, the name of that place was replaced by the name Mongla At present telecommunication system has been established at Mongla and Hiron Point for the ship to ply along the long channel without worries. It is easy to go by river to the nearby Sundarbans. Many tourists who come to the Sundarbans use this route. Near the Mongla Port, Bangladesh Parjatan Corporation has established a spectacular motel named ‘Hotel Pashur’ on the bank of the Pashur River. The hotel offers nice accommodation and aristocratic food. The motel has sixteen bedrooms.
