Dhaka is a megaceety an ane o the major ceeties o Sooth Asie. Locatit on the banks o the Buriganga River, Dhaka, alang wi its metropolitan aurie, haes a population o ower 12 million, makin it the lairgest ceety in Bangladesh.[2] It is the 9t lairgest ceety in the warld[4] an an aa amang the maist densely populatit ceeties in the warld.
