Lalbagh Fort - Info and Facts

Located in Old Dhaka, the Lalbagh Fort was built in the 17thcentury by the then Viceroy of Bengal, Prince Mohammad Azam, son of Mughal emperor Aurangzeb.

A three-domed giant mosque with a water tank in front, a beautifully constructed tomb known as the Tomb of Bibi Pari (daughter of the Prince’s successor, Shaista Khan), and a hammam (Turkish bath) are the main components of the fort, which features a unique architectural style and intricate design.

The bathing palace, now a museum, exhibits various artifacts from the Mughal period.

Another fascinating feature of the Lalbagh Fort is a maze of hidden passages and tunnels, and billets (military barracks) for soldiers, which, for safety reasons, are not open to the public.
