Barisal

 

Barisal is located in south-central Bangladesh. Formerly a district, it is now a division. The town lies in the Ganges (Padma) River delta on an offshoot of the Arial Khan River. Incorporated as a municipality in 1876, it is a transshipment center for rice, hides, and pulses. It is linked by steamer with Dhaka (73 miles [117 km] north) and with Chittagong to the southeast. There is a medical college affiliated with the National University. 

Barisal gives its name to a curious natural phenomenon known as Barisal guns, thundering noises heard in the delta and apparently coming from the sea. The sounds have not been satisfactorily explained but may have a seismic origin. Population of the area is 180,014 ( 1991).

Barisal Division consists of the districts of Barisal, Bhola, Pirojpur, Jhalkathi, Patuakhali and Barguna. The district of Barisal has 10 upazilas. Total area of the district is 2790.51sq. km. and population 22,07,426.
