Planning to visit Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Safari Park in Gazipur? Please note -- the entry to the park is free on Thursday.
This is to mark the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s 102nd birth anniversary and National Children's Day, authorities have said.
"The entry to the park is free, but visitors will have to pay the charges fixed for separate events inside the park," said the director of the safari park, Rezaul Karim.
The safari park entry fee is Tk 50 for adults and Tk 20 for children above five years. Some 4,500-5,000 people visit the park daily.
Meanwhile, a doa mahfil and milad will be held at the mosque of the park after Zohr prayer seeking salvation of the departed soul of Bangabandhu.
The 102nd anniversary of the birth of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman is being observed across the country on Thursday.
Marking the day, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina paid tributes to Bangabandhu by placing a wreath at his portrait in front of Bangabandhu Memorial Museum at Dhanmondi-32 in Dhaka this morning.
