Ahsan Manzil, Dhaka City

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.

  • A crucial building in Bangladesh's history. Where all the nawabs and delegates from other countries came to discuss politics and the future of the nation. It has withstood for a long time. But some retro work has been to keep the building standing. Now a museum, it attracts tourist from all over the country. Also has rich historical artifacts present.
  • an organized historical place in the bank of buriganga river. there is a museum also that can lead you to the pros and cons of that time with so many historical evidences. the place is cozy but very well maintained. you can enjoy your time with friends and loved ones. to reach the destination is somehow troublesome but place is a must visit place

  • Great historical place in Bangladesh. It's good for both visitors from home and abroad. It is actually a mark of the glorious history of Bengali Nawabs. It's our pride. The antique technologies collected in the museum display is very encouraging for us.
