This is a very good hangout place in Old Town, Dhaka. This displays the Dhaka's old elegance in every brick of it. However, communication is not so good. People might get some trouble and face severe traffic to go there. However, Friday and Saturday is the best time to visit this place.

Ahsan Manzil which is situated at Puran Dhaka, beside the bank of buriganga river. This place is really awesome. The palace once was nawab's residence and now use as a historical museum. The view of buriganga river from the 1st floor of this palace is simply mindblowing.

Ahsan Manzil was the official residential palace and seat of the Dhaka Nawab Family. Ahsan Manzil is a historical place & tourist spot. A good place to visit when you are travelling in Dhaka. After independence of Bangladesh it was acquired by Government and was renovated as a Heritage site and a Museum.

Our trip was excellent. All travel arrangements went smoothly including multiple flight within Bangladesh (Dhaka). We appreciated the local guides and drivers. Their services were informative and polite. The Ahsan Manzil was impressive but it was also remarkable to share travel stories and experiences with our local guides.

After renovation and restoration it becomes a prime attractions to the history lovers. You can stay 2-3 hours there. Ahsan Manzil was the official residential palace and seat of the Nawab of Dhaka. The building is situated at Kumartoli along the banks of the Buriganga River in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Construction was started in 1859 and was completed in 1872.

Well, it is the palace from a bygone era. The location is right by the side of the Buriganga river. Reaching the spot after the traffic gridlock is a real challenge. Then again, commuting in Dhaka is never easy. But, look at the bright side. The rickshaw ride will take you through the narrow alleys of Dhaka. That tour itself... More

Ahsan Manzil - the Pink Palace in old Dhaka is really a nice place. There is a museum where we can see the life style of old Nawabs.

I know that Bengladesh is not a rich country, and it is wonderful that they have managed to keep this impressive building (with its revolting pink paint) standing. However, decay is evident everywhere, and there seems little effort to keep it reasonable clean. The exhibits are poor in quality and very poorly displayed.
