Designed by Louis Kahn, in his signature style, this edifice stands tall and magnificent in the heart of Dhaka, the capital city of Bangladesh. It has a north and south plaza, and is surrounded by wide open spaces which are well used for national events. A must visit item for any traveler to Dhaka.

This is an outstanding mega structure. But be sure that you cannot enter. It is not open for public. You can just see it from outside the boundary wall.

If you want to visit this place you really need to have at least 3-4 hours and best to walk. Becasue you will get lost during visit to this place, The famous chandrima uddayn also close by and shop around Asad Gate.

The National Parliament House is one of the iconic architectures in Dhaka. Half of the building is seated above the lake which creates a mirror image that makes the building even more breath taking. Visitor needs to obtain a pass from the authority to view the interior, if not, it can only be admired from the outside.
