Dhanshiri is a river in the Jhalkathi District of Bangladesh. Once it was full of youth but today it is becoming narrower[citation needed].


The river is a tourist spot. There are many shops, hotels, cultural organizations, and a real estate centre named after the river.

In Bengali literature, the Dhanshirhi River is a symbol of romance and love as introduced by great poet Jibanananda Das. The famous line of Jibanananda Das:

"Abar asibo fire Dhanshirhi-tir tiree ei Banglay."
