Visit Lalbag Fort, a 17th century Mughal complex that remains unfinished, but still popular. Although a Mughal prince, who later became emperor, began construction on the fort, the prince was then called to the capital Delhi by his father and construction was never completed. Nonetheless, visitors still flock here to observe its old architecture or to attend prayer at the mosque, which remains in use. At the mosque, admire Islamic art and wall designs, then head out to find a tomb and a palace in the larger fort complex. Consider visiting at night to catch the light show.

Lalbag Fort Reviews
Peaceful place for both tourists and locals! There is also a museum inside the fort with interesting items such as historical knives, clothes etc. more »
This is a beautiful park and the buildings are very photogenic. Nice place to stroll and take a break from the chaos of the city traffic and crowds. A must stop in a tour of old Dhaka. more »
This is a historical place. You will see a few forts. This will remind you old Dhaka when is was not crowded. Spending a few hours specifically if you like to walk or time pass, this is the right place. After noon is busy time and Friday it becomes the busiest pub gathering place. This place is safe. There is a juice ship opposite to the Mosque with huge number of options, don't miss it.
Good place to visit in Bangladesh. But basic facilities need to provided properly by govt. Maintenance is important else the place will Erode away by visitors. Parking facilities and Waiting area can be provided to general public for easiness. Worth visiting once.
