History Ramna park:
The history of Ramna is as old as the city itself. In 1605, when Mughal Subadar Islam Khan Chishty conquered Bengal from the Pathan kings, he established the provincial capital in Dhaka and named it Jahangirnagar. Islam khan selected Ramna as the quarter of high ranking Mughal officials. The name Ramna which is a “Persian” word meaning “Lawn” was also given by the same renowned Mughal governor. However, after the fall of the Mughal Empire, the entire area of Ramna was abandoned and it was soon covered in thick vegetation.
Some of the colonial rulers of the British East India Company cleared some parts of Ramna Park and demolished most of the Mughal buildings except the mosque and tomb of Musa Khan, which are still standing tall, even now, in the Dhaka University campus. They also established a racecourse which has now been replaced by Suhrawardy Uddyan and a club which is still functioning as Dhaka club, for their recreation and entertainment. However, Ramna Park got its heavenly garden like look in 1908 when Dhaka regained its glory of being the capital city, after the partition of Bengal in 1905. The main planner of Englands famous Kew garden R L Prowd Lock came to Dhaka and look the initiative to convert the dilapidated Ramna into Ramna green, the central public park of Dhaka. He was assisted by Fazlul Karim, the key architect of Calcutta’s Eden garden, who was also the key person to give the present shape of Ramna Park.
