The Jamuna River flows past the cities and towns of Bangaldesh’s Rajshahi Division along the right edge of this radar image. Rajshahi is one of the six administrative divisions of Bangladesh. It has a population of almost 30 million and area of about 34,513 kmĀ².

The Rajshahi division is in the north western corner of Bangladesh. It is bordered by the Padma River to the south, while the Jamuna lies across the eastern border. In the North and West, Rajshahi division shares a border with India.

The Jamuna River is one of the three main rivers of Bangladesh. It is the main channel of the Brahmaputra River when it flows out of India into Bangladesh. The Jamuna flows south, merging first with the Padma and later the Meghna River. Its waters then flow into the Bay of Bengal as the Meghna River.
