Ahsan Manzil, Dhaka City

4.1
Gaze upon the stately pink palace of Ahsan Manzil. Originally built in the 19th century by a rich landowner, the building changed hands many times and fell into disrepair. Renovation in the 1980s returned it to its original splendor, using photographs of each room for reference. Observe lavish decor and artifacts on the interior, and consider bringing along a picnic to enjoy in the palace's scenic grounds. Be prepared for crowds of sightseers.

  • One of the most important historical place in Dhaka city. People who loves historical place will find it interesting. There are a lot of ancient historical stuffs displayed there along with paints. It is a good place to visit with family.
  • One of my favorite place in Dhaka City. Probably the only remnant of nawab era that has been restored for it's historic value. Good for visit during morning hour or afternoon time. You can sit and gossip too with friend and family on the lawn in front of the palace. This place is safe for visit.
  • I have been there and although some people seemed more intent on staring at me rather than the many magnificent views at Ahsan Manzil it was one of the best three visits I have had in Bangladesh. The place and buildings themselves are three or four stars at best. The history of the place (during the time of one Nawab in particular) is what makes it truly extraordinary.
  • It is spectacularly beautiful, and one of the noteworthy architectural heritage of Bangladesh. The pink palace was actually built in 1872, and was reconstructed after the tornado of 1888 with a modified design. The new design included a beautiful doom , which made the palace so beautiful. In 1985, Dhaka National Museum acquired this palace and made it a museum.
  • A wonderful place in dhaka... But its good for couple... People who likes ancient things can visit here... This is a big place.... It has some ancient buildings there..
