Lalbag Fort, Dhaka City

4.0
#1 of 50 in Sightseeing in Bangladesh
Battlefield Historic Site
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. With our online itinerary creator, Dhaka City attractions like Lalbag Fort can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

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.

  • It's a historical place. You can spend good time with your family here. But there is no shade. So you may not find it suitable in case of rainfall and sharp sunlight.
  • A glorious part of the History of Bangladesh as well as subcontinent. This for of mid-age holds many untold stories within. Being here will fill your mind with thrilling if you are a history lover. But the management here is not that good. Be your own guide and explore the place. You will find your root here.
  • This one of the most fascinating tourist spots of the country. this place is very near to Dhaka University and it is also very convenient to come from anywhere of the Dhaka City. it is situated in the center of Lalbagh. you have to purchase ticket for entering in to the spot. there is also a mini museum there where you can see different ancient metal things such as coins, armor, swords etc.
  • this place is a icon of natural & architectural beauty..... you can enjoy here a lot... its a good place for your time pass
  • Well, this is a nice place for outing. Old structure of old Dhaka. Mughal Emperor built this structure. You'd love to visit this place. It'll take almost 1 hour to visit the whole place.
