 Chapainawabganj District (Rajshahi division) has an area of 1702.55 km2. Lot of rivers flows over this area. The main rivers are the Ganges, and Mahananda. Most of the land of this area are plain land with lots of small ponds and water reservoir. But, recently, the geography has changed due to the corrosion and erosion by the river Padma(Ganges). Overload of river sediment caused by farrakka barrage eroded the river banks and create a large area of land full of sand which almost looks like small dessert in this area. Four to five small union parisad like narayonpur, johurpur,sundorpur,baghdanga has shifted to the other side of the river Padma.
According to 2011 census report, Chapainawabganj had a population of 16,47,521. Among them, 8,10,218 are male and 8,37,303 are female. More than 3,10,000 lives in urban area and 968 people lives per km2.. The growth rate is 1.44 which is bellow the average rate in Bangladesh.
Chapainawabganj was one of the sub-divisions of the former Rajshahi zilla. Chapainawabganj was part of ancient gaur capital. It is said that this area had strategic and commercial importance due to its location at the junction of the rivers Mahananda and the Ganges. Because of its importance, Alivardi Khan founded Nowabganj town which in course of time known as Nawabganj.Until 1947, Nawabganj was a thana under Malda district, India.
The gateway of North Bengal, Malda was once the capital of Gour-Banga, with 3456 km² of land classified as Tal, Diara, and Barind. Malda awaits the advent of tourists and people of archaeological interest with its wealth to be enjoyed and its huge potential to be explored.
This portion of the earth is washed by the waves of the rivers Ganges, Mahananda, Fulahar, and Kalindri. It has witnessed different empires which were raised, flourished, and then cast down near oblivion by a successor kingdom built up on the relics of its predecessor. Panini mentioned a city named Gourpura, which by strong reason may be identified as the city of Gouda, ruins of which are situated in this district. Examples are legion of the relic of a predecessor kingdom being used in the monuments of the successor kingdoms.It had been within the limits of ancient ‘Gaur’ and ‘Pandua’ (Pundrabardhana).
These two cities had been the capital of Bengal in ancient and medieval ages .The boundary of Gour was changed in different ages since 5th century BC. Its name can be found in Puranic texts. Pundranagar was the provincial capital of Maurya Empire.Gour and Pundrabardhana formed parts of the Mourya empire as is evinced from the inscriptions, Brahmilipi on a seal discovered from the ruins of Mahasthangarh in the Bogura District of Bangladesh. Hiuen Tsang saw many Ashokan stupas at Pundrabardhana.The inscriptions discovered in the district of undivided Dinajpur and other parts of North Bengal along with the Allahabad pillar inscriptions of Samudragupta clearly indicate that the whole of North Bengal as far east as Kamrup formed a part of the Gupta empire.After the Guptas in the early 7th century AD, king Sasanka of Karnasubarna as well as the king of Gaur ruled independently for more than three decades. From the middle of 8th century to the end of 11th century, the Pala Empire ruled Bengal and the kings were devoted to Buddhism. It was during their reign that the Jagadalla Vihara (monastery) in Barindri flourished paralleling with Nalanda, Vikramshila, and Devikot.The Pala Dynasty yielded to the emergence of Sena Empire. The Sen rulers were Hindus and in the habit of moving from place to place within their kingdom. At the time of Lakshman Sen Gour was known as Lakshmanabati. The Sen kings ruled Bengal till Bakhtiyar Khilji conquered Bengal in 1204 AD.Thereafter the Muslim rule lasted for about five hundred years. Sirajuddaulah was defeated by Lord Clive at the battle of Plassey in 1757, which marked the beginning of British rule. From ancient times, rulers of various origins, religions, and dynasties left imprints of their times on the earth in this district. Those who left ruins and relics speak of past pomp and grandeur, and hold interest for archaeologists and tourists.
This district, Malda, formed in 1813 out of the outlying areas of Purnia, Dinajpur, and Rajshahi districts. At the time of Dr. B. Hamilton (1808–09), the presents thanas of Gazole, Malda, Bamongola, and part of Habibpur were included in the district of Dinajpur and the thanas of Harischandrapur, Kharba, Ratua, Manikchak, and Kaliachak were included in the district of Purnia. In 1813, in consequence of the prevalence of serious crimes in the Kaliachak and Sahebganj thanas and also on the rivers, a joint magistrate and deputy collector were appointed at English Bazar with jurisdiction over a number of police stations centered around that place and taken from the two district. Thus the district of Malda was born.
The year 1832 saw the establishment of a separate treasury, and in 1859 a full-fledged magistrate and collector was posted.Up to 1876 this district formed part of Rajshahi Division, and from 1876 to 1905 it formed part of Bhagalpur Division. In 1905, it was again transferred to Rajshahi Division, and until 1947 Malda remained in this division. In August 1947 this district was affected by the Partition of India. Between August 12 to 15, 1947 whether the district would become part of India or Pakistan was unknown, as the announcement of the Radcliffe Line did not make this point clear. During these few days the district was under a magistrate of East Pakistan until the details of the Radcliffe award were published and the district became part of West Bengal on the 17th of August 1947.↵Five thanas were given to Pakistan under the district of Rajshahi which later formed as Chapainawabganj.

This district is the most western district in Bangladesh which has boundary with the neighboring country India. And for importing and exporting, there is a land port in this district which makes this district an important route for communicating with the neighboring country. And the construction of the Jamuna Bridge at Sirajganj also makes its transportation system an important one all over the country. That is why highways were constructed over the district. The major transport systems inside the town is the bike, rickshaws, bi-cycle and CNG rickshaws.
The major transportation system in this town is the bus service to different districts and towns. The main transportation route is Nawabganj-Rajshahi.

In the past, the main transport system was based on the water path. The river Padma (Ganges), Mahananda River, Pagla, Moraganga and some beels (marshland) were used for intra-transport system. The water level went down due to adverse effect of Farakka Barrage on Padma (Ganges) river, and therefore, water transport has lost its popularity. But still rivers are used for transportation of daily goods from different parts of the district. Still the transportation from the villages in western and eastern parts of the district depends on the boat. In the Shibgonj Upozila have a small river name[ pagla]
This district is mainly a plain land with rivers. The whole district is full of fertile land with proper irrigation facilities. That's why the economy is totally dependent on the agriculture. But as there are a number of rivers flows by this district, lots of people depends on the river like fishing and some business related to the rivers.

Gombhira gaan is one kind of folk song popular in this district and as well as the northeaster part of Bangladesh.It is assumed that gombhira gaan was originated from the worship of the god SHIVA (one of the god of Hindu religion), who was also known as 'Gombhir'. This type of song was used only in Puja (worship) in past time. Most of the Hindu community celebrated the puja of Dharma Thakur (a popular god of Hindus) on the last day of the Bengali year which was known as GAJAN of shiva in medieval era. At that time, it was imagined that SHIVA was present at the performance. Initially, Gombhira was of two kinds; the primary Gombhira in which god and goddess were addressed and human joys and sorrows were described and sometimes important events of the year were described. In secondary Gombhira also called narrative Gombhira, every character would represent a social problem. Gombhira songs originated among the Hindu community of Maldah in West Bengal. After the creation of Pakistan, Chapainawabganj was severed to Rajshahi District and became the main center of Gombhira songs, which underwent major changes in theme and mode of presentation. Muslims became the custodians of this song and made it integral part of their social life and there culture.
Nowadays, Gambhira reflects contemporary social problems through witty dialogue, songs, dances and jokes. This is the main part in any cultural celebration in this district with great entertainment and explanation of social problems.
