You have to go to see it how a overcrowded city has such a building with so much surroundings. It is mostly a poored concrete building with allies( to walk only) in it. Like an ancient city. Buildind is surrounded by lake - looks very nice at night. Not that safe at night in yhe neighboring roeds for walk -... More

I came here several times. I love this Parliament house. Our national leaders took decision here about our countries development. A pride structure of Bangladesh. A great work sign of Eng Lui kan.

A great architecture with awesome environment. The park and lake nearby makes it a great destination for an evening walk. The avenue on the south becomes very chaotic at times but it has some good roadside food stalls where you can enjoy street foods. The park and the lake is great location for photo-shoot. But be careful inside the park... More

This is an iconic building of the 20th Century. Architects flock to view it, when they come to Bangladesh and Bangladeshis are very proud of the building. It has a cavernous interior that makes brilliant use of natural light. It is a very impressive building although I personally don't like it very much but then I don't like concrete building... More

Bangladesh's National Parliament House is an Awesome creation of Modern Architecture! Designed by famous American Architect Louis I Kahn. It established on 1 square kilometre place. Very beautiful design & place to enjoy your eyes. You couldn't enter the premises due strict security system. But explore through Manik Mia Avenue & Lake Side. Good to visit in holiday morning.

Undoubtedly this is the most magnificent parliamentary building in the earth. I have always got the same tune from tourist, professionals, countryman. It overwhelm everybody. The colossal pattern of structure was inspired from Roman architecture and the brutalist impression is strong in interior space. Frankly speaking I couldn't jump for the RCC surface all over the interior specially the corridor... More
