1610 is indeed when Galileo discovers some of Jupiter's moons, but are you sure that's when Dhaka was declared the capital, too? I was going to say 1610, but did some research that said Dhaka became the capital of Bengal (under the Mughals) on 1608.

I checked on Banglapedia - says 1610 but you may well be right too. Perhaps, ZeeMan will yield his turn to you.

Zunaid bhai, good try though. But Vanga precedes this place by at least a thousand or so years.

HINT: It is mentioned in Greek mythology, mostly by Virgil.
