One of the famous book market in Dhaka City with huge collection of new and old, local and international books of all sorts. A little congested, dirty but definitely worth a visit if you are in search of a book or even just to have an experience. Dhaka University and other few historical places are nearby.

Nilkhet is famously known for cheap and pirated books. If you are a student and if books are costly in your country, make sure that you drop by with your booklist and buy everything. It will be at least a 100 times cheaper I promise. However, make sure that you take someone reliable with you when you are visiting Nilkhet... More

Rare and lot of books are available. Place is dirty, congested, atmosphere is horrible! Not enough space to even walk. Still scope to improve the entire area.

A place I really miss after coming abroad, they have a enormous amount of books and reading items in a very affordable price. There are also quality cheap restaurants nearby and off-course the world famous Dhaka New Market, Plane Mosque, Dhaka University are nearby. Truly, miss the place.

If you don't like shopping malls this is the place to go. It is often crowded and the traffic can be daunting but you can buy virtually anything you want cheaply. It is also surrounded by other bazaars, which have to be seen to believed; the men's clothing bazar has at least fifty stalls selling jeans and there's a sewing... More

Nilkhet is the best place for textbooks and exam prep books for all ages. This is the haven for students, though it lacks stores selling fiction collection.
