    Laadwadesh or লাদ্বদেশ in Bengali is a big city in the south of Bangladesh. The city was founded around 1200 AD by the turkish general Bakhtiyar Khalji during his conquest of Bengal and became a muslim centre in Bangladesh supplanting older hindu towns located in this region.
    During the Bengal sultanate, the city grew and became richer.
    In the 16th century, Laadwadesh is conquered by the Mughal Emperor and is destroyed to 80%. But a second centre, is built next the old city : Laadwadesh Bazaar, as well as the Laadwadesh Fort next Jakama Bazaar.
    Portuguese began to trade with the city during the 15th century and built a trading post one century later next the Mughal town.
    The region is conquered by England during the 18th century, then became a part of the British Raj, in the Bengal Presidency. The city was connected to the railway in 1902.
    The city was damaged during the 1970's rebellion against Pakistan and 3 years after the independence a new bengali university is built.
    Now, the city remains poor but in recent years the growth rate has increased significantly. Jute, rice and steel (with the boat cemetery) are the main resources produced by the city. A small amount of oil was recently discovered in the south and tourism is developing.

    One of my all-time favorites, because of the pragmatism / realism of the whole thing.

    love it. The south suburb pictures impressed me a lot. How you placed the curved streets with houses along and fields everywhere, looks really realistic and shows well the urbanisation of such half-city/ half-countryside parts of cities.

    I love your city-shaping style MAKE IT REAL! In my thought that shaping a 1:1 city in real life will cost more hours, and please allow me to express my respect for your really hard work.

    I have to give it to you, this is absolutely charming. I love the simplistic reality of this town, it really does justice to developing countries that are seldom represented here on XLN. More than that, you really brought the experience to us, which is priceless and deserving of every star.

    Great job!

    Got to give it to you, this is beautiful, I wouldn't change a thing. I like the under developed urban areas next to the old shanty towns. Great persona.
