Little Jamuna River


Little Jamuna River one of the old courses of the tista river. The river originates from the Jalpaiguri (India) and falls into the atrai river northeast of Rajshahi. Previously it was more or less a large river. The course of the river is very narrow in Dinajpur district, but it is very wide in the south of Hili. The total catchment area of the Little Jamuna is about 644 sq km of which only 531 sq km lies within Bangladesh. The term 'Little' is used to differentiate the river from the mighty 'Jamuna' river.
