Jatrabari, Dhaka

Jatrabari can easily be regarded as the heart of communication across Bangladesh. It is also known for the steel furniture industry. But what you don’t hear often is that many people choose to live in Jatrabari or its surrounding areas due to transportation and other conveniences.

Part of the Dhaka South City Corporation, Jatrabari area guide shows that it has an area of 13.19 sq./km (5.09 sq mi), and the population is over 4,92,166. The area is located at the center of the Dhaka-Chittagong Road highway. It is bounded by Demra, Sabujbag, Kadamtoli and Shyampur.

Jatrabari is best known for its Jatrabari-Gulistan flyover (also known as the Mayor Mohammed Hanif Flyover). It is 11km long and is the largest flyover in Bangladesh, connecting 30 southern and southwestern districts. On a good day, it takes only around 10 minutes to cross the flyover in the Jatrabari-Gulistan route.

The Dhaka-Demra Highway, Sayedabad Bridge New Road, Dhaka-Sylhet Highway, etc., offer easy communication in different parts of the country. Due to the increasing population, Jatrabari is also becoming a suitable target for real estate investors.

Other than that, many people from different districts are investing in purchasing plots and building houses in the area. Renting rooms or apartments is very affordable here for individuals and families.

The area is also famous for having some reputed educational institutions and private and commercial businesses. The Quantum Foundation, a well-known and self-funded organization, has a branch in Jatrabari.

Though there aren’t many attractions nearby, it has some commonly known places, such as Jatrabari Park, Jatrabari Wapda Colony Power Development Board, Jatrabari Madrasa Masjid, etc.
