Description

Kamalapur Railway Station is the central railway station in Dhaka, Bangladesh. The station is the largest in the country and the most important terminal for transportation between Dhaka and the rest of Bangladesh.

It is also one of the most modern and striking buildings in Dhaka designed by American architect Robert Boughey. The railway station situated in the north-east side of Motijheel, was established in the early 1960s and started its operation from 1969.

When the station was built, it was maintained very carefully. However, slowly, it lost its previous condition. There are 47 local trains, 28 express trains and 24 inter-city trains going through the station, and normally around 50 trains a day. The station has many security guards, station masters, along with one station manager. Every day, thousands of people come through the station. The trains go to any part of Bangladesh, except Barisal and Patuakhali. There is also a train going direct to India from the station. The platforms are always populated.
