Red Fort:  Prince, Mohammad Azam, third son of Mughal emperor Aurangzeb, started building the fort Aurangabad in 1678.The prince stayed in Dhaka for one year. As he left Dhaka, he handed it over to the next governor, Shaista Khan.Shaista Khan continued the work but due to premature death of his beloved daughter Bibi Pari, all the building activities were suspended, considering it as inauspicious to continue the work.Actually he did not complete the work but constructed some magnificent obelisks inside the fort especially near the shrine of Bibi Pari. Outstanding among the monuments of the Lalbagh fort are a small three domed elegant Mosque, the mausoleum of Bibi Pari and the audience Hall and Hammam complex is now housing a museum. There are also two shrines  one of Shamsad Banu who is said to be the youngest  daughter of Shaista Khan and another of his grandson Khodad Khan. At the south of the Mazar complex there are three attaching grave. The middle one is of Mirza Bangali, one of Shaista Khan’s faithful Captains of soldier and the both side grave are of unknown child.
    Sadargath: It is situated on the bank of the river Buriganga.For a visitor, these awaits an amazing scene with different types of boats – covered and uncovered boats, cargo boats, speed boats, tugs and motor launches going in every direction.Paddle steamer service introduced during colonial period is still in service to most of towns on its route up to Khulna, is also operated from this river port.Paddle steamer service for passenger service for passenger service is obsolete now a day in other countries.A trip by Paddle steamer will enable a guest to enjoy the riverine beauty including the country side of Bangladesh.There are two main roads: one from east to west and another north to south and these two roads are joined in orthogonal shape near Sadarghat by the parallel road of the river Buriganga.The place has been turned into a large daily market of fruits and vegetables and there are a lot of retail and wholesale shop on the both sides of the road.  
 Shankari Bazar: Once upon a time, Dhaka was famous for ‘Shakha’ and the artisans were known as Shakhari.Even today, the residential area of the Shakhari represents the old tradition and culture of their predecessors.Shakha means Bangles from the conch shell and the Hindu community considers it as the symbol of good fortune and purity.In the 17th century, the ancestors of present dwellers started coming to this locality. In 1666, a tourist, named Tavernier, came to this locality and found them in this place as inhabitants.These people were very expert for making Shakha and the technique used by them was very traditional and unique, and is now replace by modern technique.Shell used to come from India and Srilanka are not always available and, more and more Hindu women are unable to afford these bangles, opting to buy the much cheaper plastic look alike. For this, the craft faces an uncertain future.  
Armenian Church: Armanitola, the much known place of old area of the city, and the Armenian Church introduced us to Armenians.They came to Dhaka in the 17th century and concentrated in the old part which was later named Armanitola after the colony of Armenian families.The church was built in 1781 on the ruins of an earlier chapel.The church is 700 feet long. It has 4 doors and 27 windows, wooden pew seats for 100 people. In 1837, a steeple serving as a clock tower was added which was collapsed during the earthquake of 1897.After hearing the sound of bell ringing, the people of Dhaka used to set up the right time on their watch.There were very few places in Dhaka as quiet and silent as Armenian Church.The church is in a reasonably good shape.The last Armenian, Stephen, was in the church as caretaker, was found in 1984.  
Curzon Hall.:  In 1900, there was a political change in the state and it was thought that Dhaka would be the capital of the state.Many buildings were constructed for this purpose. Among of these, Curzon Hall was prime one.Actually, it is one of the best examples of Dhaka’s architecture and it is a happy blend of European and Mughal element, particularly noticeable in the projecting façade in the north which has both horse shoes and cusped arches. In 1904, the viceroy Lord Curzon laid down the foundation stone of the building.
