National Parliament House Reviews
This has such unique architecture and amazing possibilities. The level of care, maintenance, and clean up were quite unbelievable. The gardens were unattended and there was trash everywhere. Almost best to take a picture from the currency it will leave you with a better image.
This is one of the most important buildings in Bangladesh. It has a huge area with lot open, green and water space. Lot of local and foreign tourists visit this building everyday. From the afternoon it starts getting busy and keeps busy up to 10PM. This building has been designed by Louis I. Kahn. This is one of his masterpieces. So it is very famous worldwide for its unique and beautiful design. I have visited this place many times in my life. Due to Metro rail project it is losing some of its green area from the eastern side, even though its beauty will remain incomparable in the country.
