Dhamrai was part of the Savar Thana during British rule in 1914. Later, in 1947, it was established as a separate Thana and put under the Dhaka district. The area is located about 40 km northwest of the city, and the Dhaka-Aricha Highway passes through it. At least 4,96,249 people are living in the area, which makes it densely populated.

The area is bounded by Mirzapur, Kaliakair, Singair, Savar Upazillas, etc. Moreover, you can see part of the Dhaleshwari River from various locations in the area. Moreover, the area is composed of alluvium soil of the Dhaleshwari and Bongshi rivers.
