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
One of my favourite place to visit in winter. Long and wide field with cool breeze will blow away your mind. Recently authorities have added a evening laser show where its past history is told. Very beautiful architectural site. I recommend it foreigners always
One of the best preserved historical relics in the heart of Dhaka city. This place attracts people from all across the sphere as a getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life. As there are different food options around the place, recommendation is obviously higher. Along with, if you are lucky being on any public holiday, you get additional laser shows there.
