Wonderful place, interesting rooms and exhibits. A place to see slowly and interacting with locals who will love to explain you the history around and take photos with you to show their friends and family that foreigners can be friendly and enjoy their country and their culture, food and landscape. Come with a local friend to feel easy, understand the country better and navigate into Dhaka old town and crowds without panic

A must visit for the history of Dhaka. I am unsure why the authorities chose to repaint the beautiful colonial building in such a garish pink but I guess it makes it stand out.

It is an interesting walk around seeing how the rich entertained guests in colonial Dhaka.

A great place to take a photo is from a boat on the river looking back at the bank.

Ahsan Manzil situated at Kumartoli of Dhaka on the bank of the Buriganga, was the residential palace and the kachari of the nawabs of dhaka. It has been turned into a museum recently. It was said to be the Rang Mahal of Sheikh Enayetullah, a zamindar of Jamalpur pargana (Barisal) during the time of the Mughals. Having purchased it from his son Matiullah, the french made it their trading centre. Khwaja alimullah bought it from the French in 1830 and converted it into his residence, effecting necessary reconstruction and renovations. Nawab Khwaja Abdul Ghani engaged Martin and Company, a European construction and engineering firm, to make a master plan for their residence.

The outsides look quite unique in pink but the experience was meh. Foreigners pay 500 taka to walk around and see relics of the family that lived there. Not top of my list.

This building is quite an eyeful with its striking bright pink exterior. I don't think I've ever seen such a large building painted so pink. Photos don't show how pink this building really is. Good place to meet locals.

beautiful building from outside, nice garden, but the interior is not well kept. it gives an idea of standard of living at that time from wealthy/ruling class.

Staff is very friendly. Beware however that over the week end you may need to queue long and they close it at lunch time and reopen at 3

An Architectural Beauty of Ahsan Manzil
Ahsan Manzil stands as an architectural beauty of Dhaka. It was a symbol of luxury, beauty, influence, and aristocracy. It is wondering to know that Ahsan Manzil was the first building to have electricity. There are beautiful things to see inside and outside Ahsan Manzil. To get more information about this experience, follow a traveling bd.

This is a National Heritage.
A wonderful collection of historic memories.
Thank you for preserving this but a lot needs to be done to make it an attraction.
Absolutely no maintenance resulting in piles of dust dirt and debris.
The garden can be made more attractive by a tiny effort at gardening.
Highly recommend a visit.

You will go into see a lot of historical artefacts, but you will instead be thronged by hawkers, beggers and scammers. The place is beautiful however not well maintained at all. There's a scarcity of artefacts and the history behind them as well.

Ahsan Manzil is a palace located in Dhaka. It was formerly the residence and seat of the Nawab of Dhaka. Entry fees is 500 taka for foreigners. Beautiful pink construction. Many halls filled with photos of rural, poets, Nawabs, utensils used, the way they live, dining halls and much more. Need to read more about history of Bangladesh.
