Barisal city occupies an area of 58 km.
Barisal was a semi-independent area in the Mughal period because of heavy fighting between them and Hindu chiefs, although large parts of the city were totally under the control of the governors of the proto-industrialised Bengal Subah. In course of time, it fell under the Bengal Nawabs, the last being Raja Ramranjan Chakravarty and then colonial British India, later passed to East Pakistan at independence and finally Bangladesh.
