(with almost no explanations at all) then this place is not for you. It is cool to see a huge pink building in the middle of the bustle of Old Dhaka, but it is not longer a palace.

Palace of Siraj Ud Dawla. The place is dirty and full of pick pockets. So please be aware. This palace is situated near the river Buri Ganga.
