Sonargaon, Dhaka City

(240+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site
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. Take a look at our Dhaka City trip generator to schedule your visit to Sonargaon and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • I made an afternoon trip of this intriguing site and a neighboring lake/park. It is an hour by public bus from Dhaka and worth the time. Go on the weekend and join in the fun with local Bangladeshis.  more »
