Designed by celebrated American architect Louis Kahn, National Parliament House offers an architectural feast for the eyes. Completed in 1982, after the Liberation War, it features simple geometrical shapes, well-manicured lawns, and modern buildings with plentiful daylight. While the main building, surrounded by an artificial lake, remains closed to the general public, you're free to explore the rest of the complex on a relaxing walk or invigorating jog.
