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.

  • Great historical place in Dhaka city. Nice place to spend leisure with friends. Its green environment can refreshes anyone’s mind. Clean and fresh environment is also remarkable. There is a nice museum. Highly recommended to visit this great historical place.
  • nice and historical place. people call this place The pink palace. you can observe here many historical things. its got back to you the history. its situated near the river of buriganga..
  • A breathing place for the Dhaka city dwellers. The place reminds us the glory of this four handred years old city. It is the crown of the city's old beauty. The surrounding areas are very crowded and dirty; the place is also poorly maintained. Washrooms are unusable. The late afternoon time in the summer season is the best to visit.
  • A old villa of Naowab of Dhaka.A nice place to visit.Here are actually three separate building.Architecture is Armenian,European and mixed influenced. There are some small structure like kitchen,bath house,maid house etc.In recent days a museum has established to preserve the sample of old-time crafts.
  • One of most important historic place of Bangladesh. The home of nawabs. Really amazing.
