Chandrima Uddan is a park situated in the road beside the Jatiyo Sangshad Bhaban, in Dhaka, Bangladesh. The name literally means "Moonlight Park" in Bengali.[citation needed]

The park is notable for being the place where the former Bangladeshi President, Ziaur Rahman was buried. It is connected to the road with a bridge which runs over the Crescent Lake. The park is a common place to spend leisure time in the vicinity.[citation needed]
