Mughal era and prior. Stretching over 10,000 aq km in the area it lies in the nation of Bangladesh and
partly in India as well. Home to a diverse ecosystem, over a third of the total area of Sundarban, is

The other parts constitute a large and unbroken chain of the tropical and subtropical forest with patches
of settlements in them. The elegant view of the interconnected waterways and the sandy forests will

government of Bangladesh and India too. Furthermore, there are over 150 different commercially
significant fishes available in the water giving the locals a well needed economical support. The
landscape and picturesque setting make every sunset here majestic too.
