Well kept and maintained.The entire memorial is curated in a beautiful house made of wood, where Zia Ur Rahman was assassinated. Beautiful during the day and the sun falls beautifully on the location. Much to start great conversations around. And you can take lovely photos.

This is actually the old circuit house where one of the former presidents was assassinated by his guards. So, this place is converted into a museum after his name. Anyways, this has been an old building established during the British colonial period.
