Ahsan Manzil, Dhaka City

4.0
#5 of 50 in Sightseeing in Bangladesh
Architectural Building Tourist Spot
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.

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.

  • One of the tourist and historical place in Dhaka city. Nice environment to spend​ time here with friends and family. You have to take about 3 to 4 hours to enjoy its architectural​ beauty. You should visit here if you are a visitor in Dhaka city. Thank you.
  • Good place to visit. You can visit thos historical place with your family. The route to go there contains heavy traffic jam. So take time to go. Have a nice visit
  • The symbol of the architectural design of old dhaka. The palace was once the face of Dhaka city. However transportation is not so convenient here. One should bring his/ her own car to travel this historic place. The place remains crowded on daytime.
  • The museum inside the palace is nicely arranged. These days that light pink color is spoiling the supreme beauty of it.
  • Very good visiting place to spend. 2 to 3 hours is enough to visit all the areas. You can't take your bag, mobile and other belongings in to the main museum building.
