Sundarban the greatest mangrove forest of the world...

Sundarban is the largest mangrove forest of the whole world. The name Sundarban can be literally translated as "beautiful jungle" or "beautiful forest" in the Bengali language (Sundar means "beautiful" and bans means "forest" or "jungle"). The name may have been derived from the Sundari trees that are found in Sundarbans in large numbers.
