Welcome to Khulna

The local culture here has a tangible Indian flavour to it, and the frontier sensation hangs heavy in the air. Many people talk about having relatives across the international border, and have been to India on frequent visits. The regional dialect here has a greater linguistic overlap with West Bengal than eastern or northern Bangladesh, while the cuisine, peppered with cross-border cooking traditions, also has its own distinct identity.
