You can't go in, but it's interesting to see the architecture. Worth a brief stop but not much more.

The National Martyrs' Monument or Jatiyo Sriti Shoudho in Bengali is located at Savar, an industrial suburb about 35 Km northwest of Dhaka. The monument stands as an iconic structure, encapsulating the nation's gratitude toward the martyrs who sacrificed their lives for the Independence. In December every year, thus, the National Martyrs' Monument becomes the epicentre of the nation's collective rituals in celebrating nationhood. The visitor is presented with a strong axial visual connection to the monument from the main northern entrance. The tortuous path to the National Monument appears to symbolise the nation's difficult path to independence. As much as it tells the story of Bangladesh's journey to independence, the National Martyrs' Monument narrates a beautifully choreographed architectural story. This is an amazing place for the locals and tourists to observe and to remember and respect the great heroism and sacrifice of the freedom fighters.

Liberation War Museum started in a two-storied old building at Segunbagicha in Dhaka. This old site of the Museum, where the Liberation War of Bangladesh had been portrayed beautifully, was an amazing place for history lovers. We visited that place in some occasions. The Museum shifted to its permanent location at Sher-e Bangla Nagar, Agargaon in Dhaka and the new building inaugurated in the last year. The new custom-built building has huge space, which displays in several galleries, which include photographs, documents, media coverage and materials used by freedom fighters and martyrs of the Liberation War. It’s an amazing place to visit in Dhaka for the locals and tourists.

We were staying close to the Lake and I thought I will get a chance to go around for morning walk. As it was raining most of the time, this was not possible. I saw the beautiful lake while going for dinner in the night. It looks beautiful with so much of light all around. It would be good to take a stroll around the lake. Looking for an opportunity during the net trip to Dhaka.

Symbol of Bengali nationalism. This monument was built to commemorate the martyrs of the historic Language movement of 1952(only and one languafe movement in the world's history). Hundreds and thousands of people with floral wreaths and bouquet gather on 21 February every year to pay respect in a solemn atmosphere. Celebrations begin at zero hour of midnight. As recognisation of the language movement UN declear 21 February as International mother language day in 1999, which ovsreve all over the world every year on 21 February.
This site is of great significance and importance in the history of Bangladesh. It was created to show respect towards the great people who sacrificed their lives in 1952 in order to establish Bangla as the national language. This was an unique revolution as nowhere else in the world there has been such documented revolution in national level to gain right to the preferred language. The structure is really awesome, but the site isn't maintained at all. The surrounding environment is filthy, homeless people roam on and around the place. In simple words, this site is not getting the respect which it rightfully deserves. IMO, rather than visiting the place in person, it would be better for its image to read about the history related to this place, and to watch the numerous wonderful photos that are available online.

Nilkhet is very familiar place mainly for the students of Dhaka City, it is located very near to New Market. This a place, where one can find varieties of local and international new and old books and stationery with reasonable price. Varieties of services like photocopy, printing, binding, purchasing, selling and buying of books and magazines are available. It’s a bit crowded place, therefore, take care of your wallet and other valuable items.

A place where sadness comes out from every little thing. The new annexe contained documents, pictures, clippings from newspapers & magazines, etc. Fairly maintained but could have been better managed & artefacts displayed. The old building, where the great man lived, is interestingly arranged. Poignant & a terrible feeling of melancholy. Of thinking what could have been. Tragic consequences. Outside the main buildings, there is the cenotaph sort of structure where wreaths are placed on occasions.
