From all other reviews we all know the names of all three leaders resting here.
It's rarely stated that the monument was designed by architect S. A. K. Masud Ahmad (former Chief Architect, Govt. of Bangladesh) and was established in 1963 during East Pakistan period. The style of architecture of the monuments is an interpretation of Islamic Arcs.
The three leaders died on different dates but were all buried in the same area as all three of them had contributed significantly to East Pakistan and were all involved politically.

The Mausoleum of Three Leaders (Bengali: তিন নেতার মাজার, also known as the Suhrawardy Udyan National Memorial), located at Shahbag, Dhaka in Bangladesh, contains the graves of three prominent leaders of Pakistan Movement from Bengal: A. K. Fazlul Huq (1873–1962), Huseyn Shaheed Suhrawardy (1892–1963) and Khwaja Nazimuddin (1894–1964).[2] All three men served as the Prime Minister of Bengal in British India and after independence two of them also served as Prime Minister of Pakistan.

The monument was designed by architect S. A. K. Masud Ahmad (former Chief Architect, Govt. of Bangladesh) and was established in 1963 during East Pakistan. The style of architecture of the monuments is an interpretation of Islamic Arcs.

The Mausoleum of three leaders was established in the year 1963.[citation needed] It was designed by architect S.A.K. Masud Ahmad. The three political leaders are A.K. Fazlul Huq, Huseyn Shaheed Suhrawardy and Khawaja Nazimuddin.[3] The three leaders died on different dates but were all buried in the same area as all three of them had contributed significantly to East Pakistan and were all involved politically.

A.K. Fazlul Huq was a very well known politician who was famous for his leadership qualities. One of his most important contributions was being involved with the Bengali Language Movement. He also presented the Lahor Prostab (Lahore Resolution) in 1940. Fazlul Huq along with Huseyn Suhrawardy had engaged in many political acts such as forming the United Front in the 1954 elections, with which they had gained victory by winning the most seats. Huseyn Suhrawardy and Fazlul Huq had also worked together to control the government of East Pakistan. However, it was rumored that Suhrawardy and Fazlul Huq had rivalry between them which had caused Fazul Huq to step down from politics. Suhrawardy was known to be the founder of the Bangladesh Awami League. He was also known to contribute significantly to the growth and development of East Pakistan. Suhrawardy became the Prime Minister of Pakistan in 1956 but resigned in 1957.

Sir Khawaja Nazimuddin served as the second Governor-General of Pakistan from 1948 to 1951 and also served as the second Prime Minister of Pakistan from 1951 to 1953. Suhrawardy had served as the Minister of Labor and also the Minister of Civil Supplies under Khawaja Nazimuddin.

Even with all these achievements, it was rumored that these three political leaders had a rivalry with each other in terms of success. However, despite their rivalry, three of the political leaders were buried under the same roof of the mausoleum of the three leaders.[2]

This is one of the greatest architectural masterpieces in Dhaka. Our great three leaders lie here. By seeing it for the first time someone may find similarity or may think about the Sydney Opera House in Australia. But this mausoleum has its own unique design. Many people visit this everyday.
