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.

  • A beautiful Palace right on deer water located. Learn good op der opening hours and avoid as much as possible party or freer days in frightened, because then jet first an hour in line. The Palace has a rather kitschy rosé colour, but between all the drab buildings is that correct,

  • Good place to go. It define our culture. One of the most favourite place of mine. Really good place to go with friends and family specialy with kids
  • This place is undoubtedly amazing. The museum has all the things they used during their lifetime but it took me 30 minutes only to tour the place and could be kept a bit more clean. Other than that its an amazing place to visit.
  • Ahsan Manzil is one of the most beautiful palaces in old Dhaka. It has a beautiful view in front, as it is just beside the Buriganga River. After entering in to the building, you will be amazed with the beautiful architectural works done by the architects of that time. One of the highlight is the ball room of the palace where higher officials from Britain and Bangladesh including the Nawabs used to dance with their wives with live music. It has a beautiful painting of that time hanging in the wall that kind of takes you back to that time. There is a small shop as well from where you can buy souvenirs. One minor inconvenience is the location of the palace. Though it was one of the most prestigious places at that time, it is quite difficult to get there now due to the crowded roads.
  • One of the Historic place of Bangladesh. Most of the historic place in bangladesh is destroyed or left with negligence. Only few like this is still going on & tacking care of. this place os good but not large & the field in front is full with garbage that people left when visiting this place. such a shameful work indeed.
  • A splendid place with beauty of a 19th Century's Rich family. The well organised place is magnificent and gives goosebumps as this place has been used for many historical purposes. A good place to pass your leisure with family..

Where to stay in Dhaka City

Hotels in Dhaka are among the world's most affordable, but due to a lack of tourist infrastructure you should plan ahead to avoid misunderstanding. Most of the upmarket hotels group in the downtown area, while budget hotels cluster in Old Dhaka. There is a wide range of room or apartment rentals and guesthouses, though some areas impose restrictions for renting out to foreigners. If staying long-term, explore options in Gulshan and Banani, north of town.
