Ahsan Manzil, Dhaka City
(4/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
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. Take a look at our Dhaka City vacation planner to schedule your visit to Ahsan Manzil and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • Ahsan Manzil situated at Kumartoli of Dhaka on the bank of the Buriganga, was the residential palace and the kachari of the Nawabs of Dhaka. It has been turned into a museum recently. It was said to be the Rang Mahal of Sheikh Enayetullah, a zamindar of Jamalpur Pargana (Barisal) during the time of the Mughals. It was known as 'The Pink Palace'. Recognizing the historical and architectural importance of the Ahsan Manzil, the government of Bangladesh renovate it completely in 1992.
