Explore the History of Old Dhaka with your own Private Guide


Old Dhaka is known as a living museum with a cultural background reaching back more than 400 years as the capital city of this region. In the 12th century, the township developed on the bank of the river Buriganga, based on the Dhakeshwari temple (The central Hindu temple of Bangladesh). During Mugals (1608) Dhaka was made the capital of Bengal.

We'll visit Sadarghat, central river port. Walking along the mass through some narrow lanes & explore the lifestyle of the locals known as "Dhakaia". Handicrafts, workshops & markets along with traditional foods are really great. Armenian Church is a historically significant architectural monument situated in old Dhaka. Star Mosque - the most decorative mosque of the city.

You will enjoy the Rickshaw ride through the narrow lanes of old Dhaka, which is full of cultural activities.

Lalbagh Mughal Fort, built by prince Azam in 1678, is still unfinished.
