Lalbag Fort, Dhaka City

4.0
Visit Lalbag Fort, a 17th century Mughal complex that remains unfinished, but still popular. Although a Mughal prince, who later became emperor, began construction on the fort, the prince was then called to the capital Delhi by his father and construction was never completed. Nonetheless, visitors still flock here to observe its old architecture or to attend prayer at the mosque, which remains in use. At the mosque, admire Islamic art and wall designs, then head out to find a tomb and a palace in the larger fort complex. Consider visiting at night to catch the light show.

  • Lalbag fort is a historical place of Bangladesh. I went to visit this historical place last Friday. This a very crowded place in Friday. There was a long line for tickets. Students from different classes and different institution come to visit this place every day. They enjoyed visiting the place with their friends and family. They can know the history of this fort when they visit the place practically. But the fort needs to be maintained properly and cleaned everyday.
  • The 17th Century Fort of Dhaka. Lalbagh Fort is a lovely place to spend some quality time with friends or family. It's full of Green. Lovely flowers and beautiful Green ground. This place is so neat and clean. Anyone can sit or lie down on the green ground. Every man would be so happy after entering the fort because they can snap their moments with some lovely views.
  • This is a great example of our national heritage. I've visited this place many many times. but recently the beauty of this place is getting damaged due to our lack consciousness. We all have the bindings to keep this place as beautiful as earlier. The pressure of visitor is very high during the holidays. I've seen so many foreigners to visit this place.
  • A wonderful green oasis in the heart of Old Town Dhaka. Historic place, beautifully maintained gardens, amazing architecture And so far away from the city's noise! In my eyes one of the must-sees in Bangladesh's capital. Spent there two and a half hours during my last stay in Dhaka. Look forward to enjoying it again next time.
  • Historical place; if you visit here you could feel the Maghal families. It's not only a fort it's also a magnificent area. You can easily lose yourself in the nature. I 'm inviting you, if you visit Dhaka or Bangladesh must visit Lalbagh Fort.
