One Day Tour Plan in Dhaka City: Lalbagh Fort/ Lalbagh Kella
Located on the bank of the river Buriganga in the southwestern section of Dhaka in the historic Lalbagh region of Dhaka. Although Emperor Aurangzeb had intended to build a fort at Lalbagh, his son Yuvraj Shahzada Azam began building in 7 AD. Lalbagh Fort was once known as Aurangabad Fort or Aurangabad Fort. He ceased building the fort after the death of Iran Dukhat Paribibi, Subedar Shaista Khan’s daughter, in 6 BC. In the fifth century, the Aurangabad area was renamed Lalbagh.
The name of the fort was changed to Lalbag Fort along with the name of the area. The fort of Lalbagh has three gates, two of which have been closed. The gorgeous garden floods the thoughts as you come through the gates. A tomb has been created to remember Shaista Khan’s daughter as you enter the route straight ahead. The mausoleum is square, with each arm reaching a length of 20.2 meters. The marble mausoleum is one-of-a-kind, with a copper-sheeted artificial dome atop the original mausoleum. The Lalbagh Fort Mosque, gorgeous fountains, numerous graves, and guns used in the fight are also worth visiting.

Lalbagh Fort most attractive things (what you can see here):
I noticed some appealing features in Lalbagh Kella –
Azam Shah went to the mosque before going to Delhi because there is a mosque in Fort. This three-domed mosque needs some attention. The mosque is the prayer congregation. There are so very few old mosques in Dhaka. This mosque is located in the complex’s western wing, directly across from Bibi Pari’s tomb.
The Tomb of Bibi Pari: Of the Mughal buildings inside the fortification, the Bibi Paris Mausoleum is the most significant. As it is an interesting structure. It is the main structure, with dark basalt from Rajmahals Hills, white marble from Rajputana, and encaustic tiles of various colors used to brighten its interior.
The South Gate: Of the Mughal buildings inside the fortification, the Bibi Paris Mausoleum is the most significant. As it is an interesting structure.
Diwan-i-Aam: The Double Story Diwan-i-Aam is the greenest part of the Lalbagh Fort. It was used as the office at the time. Diwan-i-Aam is the place from where the Mughal ruler gave directions to the ordinary people once a week. There is also a royal bathroom known as the Hammam.
