Comilla Sadar South Upazila derived from Laksham and Comilla Sadar Thana in 2008



History and Background:
Comilla Sadar Dakshin came into existence in the year 2008 as a thana. Formerly this upazila was under Comilla Adarsha Sadar and Laksham upazilas. Nothing is definitely known about the origin of the upazila name. As a result of creating Dhaka - Chittagong highway through the former Kotwali Thana this place became very important for trade and commerce. The dwelling households also increased tremendously with the passage of time. The reasons above are responsible for creating this upazila.



Area and Location:
The upazila occupies an area of 209.97 sq. km. It is located between 23°21' and 23°32' north latitudes and between 91°04' and 91°18' east longitudes. The upazila is bounded on the north by Comilla Adarsha Sadar upazila, on the east by India, on the south by LaksamNangalkot and Chauddagram upazila and on the west by Barura upazila.
