Mata Sagor


Apart from the Ramsagor of Dinajpur there are other two large water tanks located in the town. The name of those water tanks are Mata Sagor and Sukh Sagor. Both of those are similar in size, and none of those never get dry during any season. The Sukh sagor is located near the Dinajpur Rajbari. This is just few minutes of rickshaw drive from the Rajbari. Most of the area of the Shukh sagor is occupied by local people who built their houses.

Sukh Sagor


Its not far from the Sukh Sagor where the Mata Sagor is located. In my opinion, Mata Sagor is more attractive then the Sukh Sagor. Also this one is larger than the Sukh Sagor. Also the water of this one is much clearer than other one. Mata Sagor is located at the Rajarampur village of the Dinajpur town. Once upon a time, all the banks of the water tank was covered with very high boundaries. But due to the corruptions of the local people those mounds are now gone. But still there are some amount of those are available.

Sukh Sagor


The word Sagor or Sagar means ocean. At the northern part of Bangladesh the ocean is really far. In past whenever they saw a large pond or lake they started to call it as Sagar to emphasise how vast the pond or lake is.
