Souvenir of Dhaka: Lalbagh Fort on Acrylic Fridge Magnet

A fitting souvenir of Dhaka would be this acrylic fridge magnet showing a gorgeous view of the Lalbagh. Lalbagh is a fort complex situated in the northwestern region of the city and is on the banks of the River Buriganga. Prince Muhammad Azam who was the son of famous Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb commenced construction of the fort. When, Prince Azam was summoned to aid Aurangzeb in the fight against the Marathas, Nawab Shaista Khan, the governor of the city carried on with the establishment of Lalbagh. The project was suspended when, Shaista Khan's daughter, who was engaged to prince Azam, died.

Specifications of the Fort

Lalbagh measures 1082' by 800' and comprises of lots of walls and gateways. The two chief gateways located at the northeast and Southeast corners of the fort stand at a distance of 800' from each other. The majestic southeastern gateway is a great example of Mughal architectural style; it was meant to have three levels but the final storey could never be completed. The inner portico of the fort has an archway with four centers and has semi-octagonal recesses on all its sides.

More about Lalbagh

The fort's outer facade is also constructed on a similar pattern to that of the inner facade. On the top of every alcove, there is a window with a beautiful cupola on its top. The archway in the center leads the way to a square shaped hall that has guardrooms on both sides. A big underground room was also built in the fort; and it is believed that it served as a summer house.
