National Parliament House

Recognized as one of the largest parliamentary houses in the world, this massive structure spreads over more than 200 acres of well-­kept grounds and attracts locals and tourists thanks to its awe­-inspiring architecture. Designed by Louis Kahn, construction on this regal government hub began in 1961.
Today, visitors can explore the grounds, which include the Bhaban (main building), Main Plaza (home to the Parliament’s library and chambers), the south plaza (mostly operations and offices) and Presidential Plaza. This and nearby Jatiyo Sangshad attract runners, skaters and other active outdoors folks who use the scenic grounds for daily exercise and urban escape.

Practical Info

The Parliament House is located at Sher‐e‐Bangla Nagar in Dhaka. Travelers cannot access the Main Building but tours of the Jatiyo Sangshad complex are available.  Visitors can easily access the structure and grounds from Manik Mia Avenue or Lake Road.
