The huge gigantic lake located in the heart of comilla city is the Dharmasagar Dighi. Dharmasagar Dighi was named after King Dharmapala. About 200-250 years ago, in about 1750 or 1808 AD, Dharmapala was the king. He was the king of the Pala dynasty. There was famine in Bengal then.The king dug this lake to help the famine stricken people. The main purpose of the king was to alleviate the water woes of the people of this region. Dharmasagar is one of the few lakes in the country called Sagar and also the most significant. In the late afternoon, when the light of the sun began to fade away, the shores of Dharmasagar gradually began to shine in the footsteps of hundreds of visitors. It’s like a reunion every day. Comilla Children’s Park is in the northern corner of Dharmasagar. The view of the lake can be enjoyed, this children’s park has greenery and huge big trees. Sitting in this children’s park fills the mind to feel good.
The green forest on the lake side has given a different dimension to Dharmasagar. Rows of large trees arranged in layers. In the middle of it is a cement bench. In a word, wonderful. This is an ideal place for those who want to visit in the afternoon. If you want, you can rent a boat and go around and visit the lake. All in all it is an extraordinary and aesthetic sight.
