I really enjoyed this visit - was interesting to see the building and some great photo opportunities when shooting through the fort capturing the tiles, the lattice bars and the garden behind. Also worth going to stroll round the gardens.

I mean it was not bad. Obviously foreigners have to pay 200taka. Grass is dry though some flowers are well maintained. Some garbage here and there and many many couples. Otherwise its a nice place for an hour or so if you have it.

If I know from where you want to go there I can answer you more precisely. My recommendation is taking the beribadh route.. This route is very polluted but it can take you there faster
