Sonargaon, Dhaka City

Sonargaon stands as a window to the once glorious past. See gorgeous ornate architecture, intricate flower decorations framing doors, and windows now standing completely abandoned and covered in moss. Although the development started under Buddhist control, the city flourished under several hundred years of Muslim rule. The buildings have deteriorated significantly, but some traces of the once-vibrant colors pop out now and then. Visit the folk arts and craft museum to see handiworks made by local artisans, then check out Panam city, built in colonial style during the British rule and inspired by many European cities.

  • One of the ancient city of Bangladesh, It has many historical story. There is a city in there named Panam city and a great museum.  more »
  • It's a worthwhile trip, though it rains. The museum is mainly artificial park, the museum generally, the lake is good, there is a small island. The ancient city is very good. A street, not a big one. Look at the introduction of the stone, should be 200 before.

  • Nice place for picnic and sarees. Though the environment is not that good but it nature looks beautiful. And don't take food from outside, take food from inside.  more »
