  • One of the most Historical places in Dhaka city. Love this place specially for the view from around. As you can't get in without ViP pass. I would recommend this place to visit, if you do visit this place try to go at late afternoon or evening. please keep the nature clean.
  • National Parliament of Bangladesh is one of the best architectural site inthe whole country. If you are a fan or follower of architecture, you must visit there. However, Still there is no established procedure of entering this is as a tourist. You need to contact a govt official to arrange visit passes. Otherwise an external glimpse of the building & the surroundings is all. In the afternoon, evening lots of food stalls sit offering snacks. Don't expect to have dinner there. There are also all some vendors selling cheap, Chinese toys etc. WARNING : In the evening, this area has some street prostitute, however, they will never bother you unless you are looking.
  • The National Parliament House is located in the center of the complex. MP hostel and emergency buildings are located outside the complex. The artificial lake surrounded by the main building, filled the middle of two gardens. At the core of the architectural architecture of this deployment, the topmost use of the place and the architecture enhances the heritage and culture of Bangladesh. It is an architectural style highlighted by the struggle for survival of people against various adversities of nature.
  • National Parliament Bhaban is in Sher-e-Bangla nagar, Dhaka. Its a great installation. Three side of this complex is surrounded by lake, only one side is open for entrance. It was a great pleasure to me to visit this complex. There are many floors with many many rooms. Main room is Parliament assembly hall. Its a big hall with sitting arrangements for all parliament members and many other offices and meeting rooms.
  • It is a awesome construction of the world ,made by concrete having only one central beam . It's a 9 storied building containing central assembly house , observation rooms , galleries, big library with thousands of books , important articles . Meeting room for different ministry , parliamentary committee and opposition as well. Very nice building surrounded by a nice lake .
