  • The family of bangladesh's prime minister has a sad past. Therefore, security in the Diet and the summit office is very strict. Therefore, it is very difficult to go inside and visit, and foreigners can visit when they submit an application form, but it seems that they will not be approved without a good reason. Another way to get in is to get in by having a friend of the diet member and a government official write a letter of recommendation.

  • Though it has an importance as our National Parliament, it looks beautiful especially during the national occasions. Many tourists come to see the beauty of this building and visitors make hangout with their friends and family in front of the building but access to the premises is restricted for the general public.
  • The hugest and greatest building in this country. Spent long time for the progress but still so honor and delight to having a tour inside. Thanks all the officers very much.
