Chittagong, a mystical land, is well known for "Baaro Awliya" the twelve Sufi saints.
Even though Chittagong is part of Bangladesh, it has its own language, culture and heritage. People of Chittagong
are known as Chittagonian / Chatgaaiya. They are very well known for their warmth and hospitality, and they are proud of having their own local language.
The abbreviation for Chittagong is CTG. In 2018, the officials in Bangladesh made an unnecessary name change from Chittagong to Chattogram. In this site, we will stick to Chittagong.
Great pride for the people of Chittagong is their language and culture. Chittagong is the financial capital of Bangladesh and home to over 16 million people, making it the second largest city in Bangladesh.
Chittagong's economy is larger than whole of Myanmar/Burma and 4 times of Nepal.
People here speak Chittagonian, and by the number of speakers, the Chittagonian language is ranked 63rd in the world.
This site is all about Chittagong - its people, food, music, culture, heritage and above all, the Chittagonian pride.
Enjoy your stay!
