Bangshi River (also spelt Bansi) (Bengali: বংশী নদী) is an important river in central Bangladesh. It originates in Jamalpur, from the course of the old Brahmaputra and flows past the Madhupur tract. It flows through Tangail and meets the Tongi in Ghazipur. It passes near Jatiyo Smriti Soudho in Savar and falls into the Dhaleshwari. 238 km in length, it is not navigable for most of the year except when swelled by the rains of the Monsoon.
