I have shortly Explained in this article’s History and Naming, Location and boundary, Area, and Population of the Mekhal.

History and Naming:

Mekhal Hathazari is a union adjoining the Upazila headquarters. The name Mekhla originates from the word mekhala. Mekhala means the waistband or waistline. The gold rate that women wear when wearing jewelry is called mekhala. According to many, the name Mekhala originated because many tributaries of the Halda river are spread over the village. In the south of Mekhal village, Mitchahara, Sanakhali in the middle, Boalia canal in the northeast, the river Parangal canal in the southeast, and many other tributary branches are flowing. The ancient husbands compared Mekhala to the natural landscape. Mekhala matched the waist ornament of a woman’s waist. Here is the birthplace of the famous Vaishnava Chudamani Pundarik Vidyanidhi. The origin of the Bangla language is the name of the chief disciple of Siddhacharya Kahnpad, the author of the Charapas, Mekhala.
