Chittagong is a major coastal seaport city and financial centre in southeastern Bangladesh. The Chittagong Metropolitan Area has a population of over 6.5 million, making it the second largest city in the country. It is the capital of an eponymous district and division.

The city is located on the banks of the Karnaphuli River between the Chittagong Hill Tracts and the Bay of Bengal. Chittagong lies at 22°22′0″N 91°48′0″E. It straddles the coastal foothills of the Chittagong Hill Tracts in southeastern Bangladesh.

The Karnaphuli River runs along the southern banks of the city, including its central business district. The river enters the Bay of Bengal in an estuary located 12 kilometres (7.5 mi) west of downtown Chittagong.

Mount Sitakunda is the highest peak in Chittagong District, with an elevation of 351 metres (1,152 ft). Within the city itself, the highest peak is Batali Hill at 85.3 metres (280 ft). Chittagong has many lakes that were created under Mughal rule. In 1924, an engineering team of the Assam Bengal Railway established the Foy’s Lake.
