If anybody visit there will learn a lot from the museum about the ancient Bangla. The museum is situated at the castle of King Isa Khan a great warrior at the Moghal period.

could be a very nice place when proper maintained.
desolate state of the monument is everywhere visible.
probably people still visit this place as other place are same or worse.

to be honest: nothing to enjoy here and no reason to go.

I was there 2 weeks ago. The park was not upto standard especially for foreigners as they are charged Taka 150 for entry! The main building was under renovation and most of the area looked deserted. A lot of local just walking around the lake. I felt it was a waste of time and energy.

5 minutes drive will take you to a small/old neighbourhood called Panam city. Beautiful architecture and very friendly local. I walked around the neighbourhood for more than an hour. A small lane with pretty little houses and the photos came out amazing. Definitly worth a visit.

The first place I visited when I arrived in Bangladesh.
This used to be the capital of Bangladesh, and has a lot of historical value.

It is very scenic, and the main building is currently under restoration. You can take a tour round this, and there are several artifacts in the rooms. There is also a museum that describes the history of Bangladesh - although all in Bangla.
However, the remaining area is full of stalls and hawkers trying to sell you stuff. On one hand you don't mind this as people need refreshments (especially after the journey), although you wonder about the relevance of these to what you've actually come to see. And like the rest of Bangladesh it becomes tiresome.

You need to make quite a journey to get here - and if there's traffic (oh, in Bangladesh there IS!) it can take nearly 6 hours for the round trip. Only go if you've got patience and a whole day.
