Dhakeshwari Temple, Dhaka City

4.3
#6 of 50 in Sightseeing in Bangladesh
Landmark Tourist Spot
Witness the rich history of Dhakeshwari Temple in the center of the city, where modern architecture meets an ancient religion. Outside the main building, see the sacred altar where people pay "puja" (worship) to the goddess Durga. Inside the complex, temples reflect an eclectic mix of architectural styles thanks to being built at different times, as well as various renovations throughout the complex's history. It's widely believed that the main temple was built in the 12th century, although this remains unconfirmed, with some even assuming the Hindu temple used to be a Buddhist pagoda. See the tombs of some saints, as well as the magnificent goddess statue, as you explore the main temple's interior.

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.
