Sunrise and sunset in Bangladesh

Sunset today: 17:35 h
(Times for Dhaka)

The times of sunrise and sunset in Bangladesh are influenced by the country's moderate northern position in the hemisphere. Not as extreme as in the United States, but still noticeable. The days in summer are long and in winter short. With up to approximately 13:40 hours the longest days are in June. On the other hand the longest dark nights happen in winter (in the southern hemisphere it is the other way around). In December a night in Dhaka last almost 14 hours.

In these days the sun in Dhaka rises at 6:41. The early sunset at 17:35 makes the day currently a bit too short.

Where does the sun rise in Bangladesh?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Bangladesh is Teknaf in the region of Chittagong. There, the sun rises at 6:28 am and sets at 5:32 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Shibganj (Rajshahi) at 5:42 pm.


Duration of the sunset

The distance from the equator and the path of the sun determines not only the time of sunrise and sunset. The farther a country is from the equator, the more oblique the sun's path is to the horizon. And this causes a different duration that a sunset takes. Dhaka lies on the 24th degree of northern latitude and is therefore quite far away from the equator. While a sunset near the equator only lasts about 20 minutes, in Bangladesh this period averages 25 minutes. Bangladesh is so close to the equator that there is no noticeable difference even between June and December.
