(500+ reviews on the web)
Battlefield
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.

  • In the middle of the busy and noisy Old Dhaka, this fort is kind of an oasis. Nice architecture and the surrounding garden. Lately they have started a light show at the fort, which is supposed to be very nice. I have not seen it though. The last show starts at 7.30 pm. A must-visit place in Dhaka.
  • It's an historical place inside dhaka city which is Good for sightseeing. Very Nice and attractive views of fort and museum. But Place should be taken care with cleanliness.
  • One of the most beautiful historical place of Dhaka city. Recommend to visit during winter and afternoon of summer season.
  • A piece of beauty of the Dhaka city. You can pass several hours with family and friends here. This place will remind you about the Sultani regime in the current capital of Bangladesh.
  • Very good and historical place. It is best for spending the family times. The gardens are very attractive. Everybody should visit place
