Monsoon moments at Hatirjheel

Nusrat Nowrin | Update:

Hatirjheel, the popular spot for recreation of the Dhaka dwellers, assumes different looks at different times. The monsoon leaves the sky with refreshing beauty that can be best captured from the location.

Either moonlit or not, night is generally attractive in the lake area. Gust of wind or heavy rainfall brings a different look. The enlivened greenery during the rainy season is a relief to the eye.

Flowers and birds along with colourful insects can be found in the area. The reflection of the sky at different times pleases the visitors coming to the area everyday.
