One of the heritage. A little remains of Mughal times. Good place to visit if you are a history-knowing-freak(in a good sense). There aren't actually much to see, cause the government closed many of the rooms.

Not necessarily a must see. Unless you're quite familiar with Bangladesh history. But it's a nice visit.

Tucked in the old part of Dhaka city, it's a must see anyone who is visiting the city and interested in the history, culture or simply the people. Being there few times, my visit in last February was really pleasant, the flower gardens (all in full bloom) added very nice atmosphere.

An incomplete Mughal fort with a mausoleum, in quite good shape considering it's several hundred years old. It can get quite busy on weekends and I've heard the light show is not to be missed, though I didn't have time to catch it myself.
