Tangail (Bengali: টাঙ্গাইল, [ʈaŋgail]) is a city of Dhaka Division in the central region of Bangladesh 98 km north-west of Dhaka, the capital. It is one of the important cities of Central Bangladesh and main urban area of Tangail District. The city is on the bank of Louhajang River.[2]

Etymology[edit]

During the early 19th century, horse carts were the main transportation medium for carrying goods and passengers in the present city area. A long line of horse carts used to stand at that time. There is a common belief that the name Tangail has been originated from the word tanga meaning horse carts.

History[edit]

Tangail was a popular local business centre since the early 19th century. But the name came on focus when the headquarter of a subdivision of the Greater Mymensingh District was shifted in 1860 from Atia to there due to its fertility and high elevation near Louhajong River. At the same time, The subdivision was named as Tangail.

The Municipal Corporation or pourashava was established on 1 July 1887. During its establishment the town was composed of five wards. Tangail pourosova website http://tangailpourashava.gov.bd



} Afterwards, the pourashava was reshaped into four wards:

  • Ward no. 1 as Central
  • Ward no. 2 as Betka
  • Ward no. 3 as Dighulia
  • Ward no. 4 as Santosh

In 1988 it was subdivided into six wards:

  • Ward no. 1 as Central
  • Ward no. 2 as Betka
  • Ward no. 3 as Dighulia
  • Ward no. 4 as Santosh
  • Ward no. 5 as Zila Sadar
  • Ward no. 6 as Kazipur
  • Ward no. 13 as Purbo Adalat Para

After decisions for a few years, in 1999 the city was subdivided into 18 wards and gained its present shape. The first election of the city was held in November 1887. In that election eight ward commissioners from four wards were elected by direct vote of the citizens of the city. On the other hand, the then Subdivision Commissioner of Tangail, Shashi Shekhar Dutt, was appointed as the first administrator of Tangail city. There was no pakka street in this city then. No lamp post could be seen in the roads. In the 1890s the city was lacking safe water supply, too. The regional zamindarsand subdivision board came forward and helped financially to dig ponds, lakes and canals. Those sources served the local people with a safe water supply. In the early 1900s, the pourashava authority lit the roads for the first time by kerosene lambs. The pourashava gradually became populated in the first half of the 20th century. At that time, many tube wells were set up in the town. The main way of transportation was horse carsin the town. People used cattle for transportation, too. The people of Tangail used to visit Kolkatathrough Charabari by launchand Dhakathrough Mymensingh. In the early 1930s, electricity line was first provided in the town. The rickshawsstarted to roll in town's streets. In the 1960s, pakka roads were constructed in the town. In the meantime, Tangail was directly connected to Dhaka by road. Many bridges and culvertswere constructed to develop the area. The town got water by pipelines at that time. In 1985 Tangail City was promoted to 'B Class' from 'C Class'. In 1989 the pourashava was promoted to 'A Class'. In the 1990s, The city was financed by Asian Development Bankand Government of Bangladeshto develop water supply, sanitation, wastewater drainage, bus terminal, supermarkets and other infrastructure.[3]

Sports[edit]

Cricket is the most popular sport in Tangail. Football and kabaddi are also popular. All important sports events of the city are held in Tangail Stadium which is beside Bhashani hall and Tangail Eid-gah. The stadium has hosted national events.
