this was the place for the Nawab's of Dhaka. situated beside river Buriganga at sadarghat, Dhaka. now a museum to see and have some idea about the lifestyle of the Nawab's of Dhaka.
Definitely recommend. Lovely palace which needs some additional renovation, but has good exhibits. I especially enjoyed seeing the original photographs of the rooms and how they have restored them to what they were.
This is very old structure in the Bank of Buriganga river. You will find the old Dhaka heritage over there. Only issue is getting there because roads are narrow. Do take some local guide with you.

Ahsan Manzil is a historic place located in the Puran (Old) Dhaka. We went their by the cycle rickshaw after a thirty minutes drive on the roads and then old and narrow alleys of Puran Dhaka. This place definitely needs renovations. There was hardy any tourist information available. This is one of the old mansions of the Nawab of Dhaka.
Once you reach there after all the traffic hassle you are sure to be disappointing. Govt. dont seems to be interested in doing any maintenance work at least maintain what it has. everything looks like falling aprart.and almost with no artifacts..very deepresing
A grand mansion sinking into decay. Superficially renovated, lacks any sense of aesthetics, poor lighting, badly maintained ... one can barely appreciate the artefacts. Power can go leaving one rather in the lurch, going near-blind from room to room. It really needs professional restoration to showcase its history for furture generations to enjoy its story.
