      city, northwestern Bangladesh, on the Ghāghāt River. It is an industrial centre noted for the manufacture of dhurries (cotton carpets), bidis (cigarettes), and cigars. Constituted a municipality in 1869, it contains eight government colleges affiliated with the University of Rājshāhi; technical, agricultural, and primary teacher-training institutes; two parks; and two libraries. Rangpur (“Abode of Bliss”) is said to be the site where Rāja Bhagadatta, who took part in the war recorded in the Mahābhārata (c. 400 BC–AD 200), had a country residence.

      The surrounding area is composed of a vast alluvial plain. Most of the area is under continuous cultivation (tobacco, rice, jute, and oilseeds). An extensive rail network distributes the products of Rangpur's jute, rice, and sugar mills and cotton- and silk-weaving cottage industries. Pop. (1981) 153,174.
