This has such unique architecture and amazing possibilities. The level of care, maintenance, and clean up were quite unbelievable. The gardens were unattended and there was trash everywhere. Almost best to take a picture from the currency it will leave you with a better image.
This is one of the most important buildings in Bangladesh. It has a huge area with lot open, green and water space. Lot of local and foreign tourists visit this building everyday.

Due to Metro rail project it is losing some of its green area from the eastern side, even though its beauty will remain incomparable in the country.
