After crisscrossing numerous bylanes anticipating a glimpse of the royal past finally reached the ticket counter which had a longish queue further heightening my anticipation. The main structure turned out to be was some kind of a bathroom surrounded by ill maintained lawns with walkways. Would highly recommend skipping this monument.

The ground of this site are well maintained and nice to walk about. Very disappointed with the way the historic artefacts had been kept I even saw tape used to repair a bow and arrow 🏹, covered in dust.

Nothing too special here. But, it was a part of the day tour. We rested here for an hour or so. Many of the locals came to talk with me or take selfies. I enjoyed the visit. It certainly is a respite from the crazy hustle and bustle that is Dhaka.
