The Lalbagh fort is still the monument of the Mughals. You will find the feel of the Mughal emperor's creation still now.

I found significant no of foreigners engulfing in the passage of history of ancient Dhaka. This place is quite clean with spacious lawn and lovely display of different types of roses.... More

I born near to that place😊. I miss my childhood. Whenever I get time, I visit them. This is a beautiful historical structure of Khaja family. I would recommend everyone to visit this place to explore the history of old DCCA a bit.
