Sirajganj District: A to Z information

Sirajganj is a district in north-central Bangladesh. It is a part of Rajshahi Division. In 1762, a severe earthquake changed the flow of the Yamuna river and created a new river named Baral. New land arose on the west bank of this river, and most of the zamindars around it were owned by landlord Siraj Ali Chowdhury. Thus, his name gradually became recognized as Sirajganj.
