It is also surrounded by other districts, such as Dhaka, Narayanganj, Madaripur, Shatiatpur, etc. With the recent establishment of the Padma Bridge and the well-known Mawa Ghat, the Munshiganj area guide is one of the most sought-after city guides by people in Bangladesh.

Munshiganj has a land area of 954.96 sq. km. and a population of about 1,625,416. While there are roads and bridges for people to pass through villages, boats become the only means of commuting during the monsoon period as the lowlands go underwater.

Many prominent historical and public figures, such as Sir Jagadish Chandra Bose, Chashi Nazrul Islam, Humayun Azad, A. N. M. Hamidullah, Fakhruddin Ahmed, etc., are from this district.

Even though Munshiganj has already been popular, the Mawa Ferry Ghat, Mawa Resort, Project Hilsa, Padma Bridge Sculpture, etc., have recently raised the area’s popularity even more. Two of the modern amusement parks, Wonderland Amusement Park and Mana Bay Water Park, are also in Munshiganj.

There are more than 530 primary schools, 99 high schools, and 13 universities in this district. Among them, the Haraganga College is a reputed college and university.

Some of the popular historical sights of the districts are Idrakpur Fort, Sonarang Twin Temples, Baba Adam Mosque, Nateshwar Buddhist Temple, etc. Other popular tourist spots include Muktarpur Bridge, Dhaka-Mawa Highway, Arial Beel, etc. Boating is a tradition of the district that is celebrated yearly.
