Ahsan Manzil is one of the greatest architectural landmarks in Bangladesh. It is located in the old Islampur of Dhaka. Buriganga river is just south of it. Entering the gate, you will see the garden of flowers on the side of the street. Anyone will be impressed seeing the red-blue-purple-colored flowers. There is a Large green field in front of the Manzil. A long stair has come down from Manzil towards the road. The river is right in front of the field. What an amazing view that is!

This is Ahsan Manzil, which influenced this East Bengal as well as Dhaka from the middle of the nineteenth century to the second decade of the twentieth century. In 1872, Nawab Abdul Ghani renovated the house and named it as Ahsan Manzil. Nawab Ahsan Ullah lived in this house on the banks of the Buriganga river in Dhaka. There are many lovely domes of the palace here. Currently it is a museum. Thousands of visitors come to visit this museum every day.

Here you will find many notable signs of the beginning of the last century. This Manzil was the residence of the Nawabs of the British. And with the faint and soft tunes, you can see the Nawab's residence and various memorabilia here.

People of all ages will be very impressed by seeing Ahsan Manzil. When you will stand on the open road after finishing your visit, you will feel to keep looking at the dome repeatedly. Those days of Nawabs will be remembered looking towards the Manzil on the bank of the Buriganga river.
