What is there to see and do in Dhaka?
As the capital city of Bangladesh, Dhaka is a large metropolis and is the country's cultural hub. With a rich history and plenty of stunning architecture to admire, the city is a great place to go to learn more about Bangladesh's past. Visit the Ahsan Manzil, which was once the Nawab of Dhaka's place of residence; head to the 1857 Memorial, which remembers those who died fighting against British Rule during the first Liberation War (1857-1859); or the statue of Aparajeya Bangla and the Jatiyo Smriti Soudho (National Martyrs' Memorial) to commemorate the victims of the 1971 War War of Liberation.
