Lalbagh Fort –A signature of Mughal relic

Synopsis:
The Lalbagh Fort or Fort Aurangabad, an incomplete Mughal palace fortress in Old Dhaka. The construction of the fort was commenced in 1678 AD by Prince Muhammad Azam during his 15 month long vice-royalty of Bengal, but before he could complete the work he was recalled by Aurangzeb. His successor, Shaista Khan did not continue the work, though he stayed in Dhaka up to 1688. His daughter Bibi Pari (Lady Fairy) died here in 1684 and this led him to consider the fort to be ominous. It is located on the banks of the Buriganga River on the outskirts of Dhaka, Lalbagh Fort offers a fascinating glimpse into the history of Bangladesh. This magnificent, but unfinished, 17th century Mughal palace fortress consists of a series of structures surrounded by lush lawns and cultivated gardens complete with a large collection of statues. Currently, the Archaeological department of Bangladesh is maintaining this Historical place. Almost 3 million people visit this place every year.
