It's Louis Khan's most important building. If you don't know his fascinating story, watch that 2003 documentary made by his son first. You won't learn much from the tour guide, but the parliament building is the must-see of Dhaka.

World renowned Louis Kahn is the architect of this national monument which serves the purpose of our national Parliament sittings. The evenings see a huge gathering of walkers, chatters, street food eaters and horse carriage riders. Early mornings see a lot of joggers, walkers, runners, taekwondo and karate students practising.

Quite a modern structure and impressive. One cannot take any photos or not allowed to enter inside. Even cars are not allowed to stop near it.

But no one can enter the premises when the parliament session is going on. But any one can enjoy the beauty of Crescent lake and Zia park beside this building.

This is a very famous landmark in Bangladesh, situated in Dhaka. The structure itself is attractive both during day and night time. The surrounding parts are very nice too. One can sit and enjoy during various times of the day, although you might be asked not to loiter around, especially if the assembly is in progress [but that's natural as... More

if you have not seen it, you will not know how beautiful it is. It has such unique look from all around- I will not go in details of the history and architecture of this unique edifice but I would like to invite you to pay a visit at the grand building and the landscape around the area!
