Lalbag Fort, Dhaka City

4.1
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.

  • One of the Historical Place of Dhaka, Bangladesh. Historical Value is very high of this place. Ancient Architecture impression found here. Many local people and also forginers come here to visit the place. Public Transport like Auto Rickshaw, Taxi Cab & Manual Paddle Rickshaw available here. Traditional Food Shop are beside the place. There is a museum inside the Fort. The area is neat and clean. Safety and security is also good.
  • Just a awesome place to visit. You can go there for a holiday visit or pass ur time. It is really a historic place. I enjoyed there a very excellent time. The scenery of the place is very beautiful. It creates a natural beauty. But the environment of this place is not as usual because of some activities of adults.

  • Lalbagh fort is a historical place with nice natural view. Here has a mini museum showing various ancient arms, utensils, books of Mughal emperors. The gardens are looking very beautiful specially in winter and spring. After evening they make a light show which I think is most attractive part in Lalbagh fort.
