The Sixth and Seventh Banknote Issues of Bangladesh

Figure 9

The 10-taka note, displaying the Atiya Jami Mosque on the front of the mosque and the spillway of the Kaptai Dam on the back. The Kaptai Dam is located in the Chittagong Hill Tracts in south-eastern Bangladesh. The dam on the Karnaphuli River forms the artificial Kaptai Lake, which is used to generate hydro-electricity, with the body of the lake providing recreation for the surrounding towns and villages. Only the spillway of the dam is illustrated on the bank notes.
