3.9/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web
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.
