Durga Sagar, also known locally as Madhabpasha Dighi, is the largest lake in southern Bangladesh.  Spanning an impressive 25 hectares (62 acres), this man-made wonder boasts a rich history dating back to 1780.  Rani Durgabati, the mother of Raja Joy Narayan, is credited with its excavation to alleviate water scarcity in the region.

Durga Sagar's charm goes beyond its size and historical significance. Imagine a serene lake surrounded by lush greenery, perhaps with coconut trees swaying gently in the breeze.  In the center of the lake lies a small island, adding a touch of whimsy to the scenery. The lake's perimeter is often lined with brick walls, remnants of its past grandeur.  Today, Durga Sagar serves as a popular spot for locals and tourists alike. Visitors can enjoy a leisurely stroll along the walking path, take in the scenic beauty, or simply relax by the water's edge.  For those seeking a more active experience, boating options might be available.
