This is lalbag forte. It was built by nawab shaysta khan who reigned bengal most efficiently. Commodities were cheapest in his era. A mausolium is here to remember his beloved daughter paribibi. The fort was on the bank og buriganga river and could be seen from far distance. It is a bright nevus on the face of bengal history

It is the only fort in Bangladesh from Mogol arena. Very good place to visit to know some ancient history. There has a museum in side the fort.

As that was the day after the Ed-Ul-Fitr,there was a huge rush.So we could not stay more than 30 minutes even we could not take photographs properly.But overall beauty was wonderful.One should go avoiding holidays for a peaceful visit.

This place serves as an wax cells t break from the hustle of Dhaka. Very quiet and peaceful, in the centre of the old city. The fort contains beautiful architecture and landscaped gardens. Whilst not that big, definitely worth a visit!
