A central district known for its picturesque riverbank scenery, Manikganj dates from the colonial era and showcases some fine examples of the architecture of that period. During the time of the East India Company, the district grew to include many whitewashed Neo-Renaissance buildings along the banks of the rivers that run through it. In 1989, a tornado wreaked havoc on many of these; those that still stand or have been rebuilt represent the main attractions in Manikganj, along with a number of mosques and bazaars. When using our Bangladesh tour planner, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.

Where to stay
Manikganj offers few accommodation choices, with just a few hotels scattered around the district. Across the river, Faridpur provides a couple of fairly standard hotels and guesthouses. Dhaka, on the other hand, features the range of accommodations you'd expect from a capital city. The main hotels lie to the east, and offer lakeside luxuries and side-street simplicity, with good access to the city's main sights, and just an hour and a half from Manikganj.
