Koyra, Khulna

Koyra is an upazila located at the furthest south of the Khulna District. It is the second largest upazila in Bangladesh, with a land area of 1775.41 sq./km, and the Sundarbans Mangrove Forest covers a large part of this gigantic upazila. That makes Koyra area guide one of the most sought-after area guides for people who want to know more about the upazila.

It has Paikgacha in the north, Shundarban Mangrove Forest in the south and east, and Shaymnagar and Ashashuni Upazilas of Satkhira in the west. The upazila has 7 unions, 72 mouzas or mahallas, and 131 villages. According to the 2022 Census, there are around 2,20,100 people in Koyra.

Though Koyra Upazila does not have many developed roads, there has been a major communication development in the last few years. As a result, people in the upazila, especially in the remote areas, are gaining better accessibility to necessary amenities. However, some areas in and across the upazila are only accessible by water transports, such as ferries and launches.

The number of educational institutions and literacy rates of Koyra upazila have also increased. There are numerous religious institutions in the area, such as mosques, churches, temples, etc. The Mosjidkur Mosque is one such notable landmark. Other popular landmarks of Koyra Upazila are the Koyra Bridge, Khalishar Dighi, Koyra River, Keorakata Tourist Spot, etc. Other than the Shundarband Forest itself, Hiron Point of the upazila has also been declared as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

Though agriculture is the main source of the economy of the people, a large part of Koyra’s income source also depends on shrimp culture and export business. The water bodies of the area are used as shrimp ghers (a bounded area), and you are likely to come across many of them in most parts of the upazila.

The geographical location of Koyra makes it highly prone to natural disasters and heavy damage. But the Sundarbans Mangrove Forest keeps most of the upazila safe. However, many developments are still needed to offer better living conditions for all.
