Sir J.C. Bose Complex located at Rarikhal, Dhaka-Dohar Highway, Sreenagar, Munshiganj. Sir Jagadish Chandra Bose (30 November 1858 - 23 November 1937) was a Bengali polymath, physicist, biologist, botanist, archaeologist, as well as an early writer of science fiction.

He pioneered the investigation of radio and microwave optics, made very significant contributions to plant science, and laid the foundations of experimental science in the Indian subcontinent. He is sometimes considered the father of Bengali science fiction.

Born in Mymensingh- "Bengal Presidency" during the British Raj that means the Bikrampur (now in Munshiganj, Dhaka). His early life was started in Kolkata, but his paternal house is still there in Rarikhal, Sreenagar, Munshiganj.

Now, his birthplace has turned into a park like memorial complex. We've found this place as a perfect place for day out with your family but not for any science awareness school visit.
