Welcome to Dhamrai

Dhamrai is a good place to experience the Hindu festival of Rath Jatra (every June or July according to the Hindu calendar). At the far end of town and in the middle of the road sits the Jagannath Chariot, a multistorey chariot adorned with painted images from Hindu mythology, which is paraded down the street during the festival.

Buses to Dhamrai pass the National Martyrs’ Memorial (Jatiyo Smriti Saudha; pronounced ‘jat-ee-yo shmree-tee shod-oh’), a tapering 50m-high memorial to the millions who died in the struggle for independence and which is housed in well-kept gardens. The memorial is on the outskirts of the industrial town of Savar.
