What to see and do
Don’t miss a visit to the magnificent Lalbagh Fort in Old Dhaka. An ancient complex that has been standing since the 17th century, Lalbagh Fort was the brainchild of Prince Mohammed Azam of the historic Mughal Empire but was never fully completed. Construction was halted due to an unfortunate death of a royal, Bibi Pari, whose untimely demise made the Fort appear to be an unlucky omen.
The Parliament of Bangladesh sits in the Jatiya Sangsad Bhaban or the National Parliament House which is amongst the world’s largest legislative complex and has been described as one of the most significant buildings in the twentieth century.
