It is one of a kind, which was built in such a way, the structure blends with environment. Considered as an icon of modern architecture, we Bangladeshies are proud of it. Thank you Louis Kan. A must in Dhaka.

Nijhoom was able to arrange a tour of the Parliament House for me. From the guide book I thought it would be too difficult. However we went and it was just fascinating to see inside and how the architect designed the building.
