Dhaka is the capitol of Bangladesh with about 14 million people.
Every form and level of life is here. Dhaka University is the Cambridge of Bangladesh where only the best students gain entry (photos 10-16).
The huge but polluted Buriganga River (photos 21-28) slices through the city making it a port for cargo and passengers–and a swimmg hole for kids.
Hindu temples and Muslim mosques co-exist peacefully (photos 32-38).
In the center of town is the mausoleum of Zia Rahman, the assassinated President (photos 48-51) as well as the futuristic national parliament building (photos 52-55).
