Its nice to visit the Parliament House for its architectural beauty and historical significance it will be worthwhile to go around it for its scenic beauty, thew waters around where the building seems submerged and the night scene is equally pleasant...

Yes, it's unfortunate you can't get super close to the building (or in for that matter) due to stricter safety precautions, but it's still worth looking at from the outside. Don't forget to go around the building: you can get much closer to it on from the back (for better pictures). It's cute to see all the couples and families... More

I was there only for a photo like 300m away from the parliament house. Asked the driver, there is no way to get into the place to get a closer look, only a photo time by the road side. Maybe i'm not in the right timing?

A wonderful building to visit, especially for architecture enthusiasts. The Bangladeshi National Parliament Building is a modern architectural marvel created by American architect Louis I Kahn. It is a very large building and, without a guide, one can easily get lost. Surrounded by parks, gardens, and artificial lakes, its truly magnificent. Tips: Check the website and get your entry ticket... More

A symbol of Dhaka city and a beautiful Parliament House. Very large and one can get easily lost inside unless you know your ways around. Truly magnificent building. In the evening the Parliament House looks amazing.

An awesome architectural beauty, a remarkable establishment in the heart of Dhaka city. Good to watch for those who love old design architectural buildings and wanted to learn too. A nice place for hangout especially in the aftenoon time.

When it was being built, no one really imagined the end product, as all was inside great architect Luis Cann's imagination. The reality is, when you stand in front of it, The structure will make you speechless. It's a modern day marvel. Must visit place.
