Remarkable structure.

Remarkable structure which needs viewing from many vantage points. Though could not enter the building, exterior coupled with a beautiful garden is worth the visit.

Designed by American architect Louis Kahn but the building is a perfect picture of Bangladesh: Imaginative, creative, and full of surprises. Tours are free but have to be arranged ahead of time. Alternatively, a tour can be booked through a tour operator (such as Guide Tours) which saves the hassle of organizing but will then not be free.

As noted a very striking building which seems even more impressive due to the distance you see it from. Did not try to get inside due to a very short time allowance but I hear it is as impressive inside as well. Certainly worth stopping off to take a few snapshots. The area around is normally full of locals who... More
