Christmas Village, a tourist attraction at the Christmas Village in Chittagong, was set to open in 2017.
A local authority official told the newspaper that it was being set up as a tourism attraction with the intention of creating a community of like-minded individuals.
The official said the theme park would also feature a hotel and other facilities.
The theme park is part of a plan by Chittang Art Park to revive the area in the hope of attracting tourists to the city, said the official, who did not want to be named as he was not authorised to speak to the media.
The development was a part of Chittai’s tourism strategy to revive Chittalgam, he said.
It was unclear whether the tourist attraction was a new venture or a re-branding of an existing attraction.
In June, the local authority awarded Chittaganath Arts Centre, an art gallery and art project, a grant of Rs 2,600 crore for the development of an arts centre.
Chittigong is also a hub for art and culture in the country, with a museum, galleries, a theatre, a school, and a cafe being established.
The Chittigans have also been a popular tourist destination in the past.
