Lalbagh Fort is one of the historical places of the Mughal Empire in Bangladesh. In 1678, Azam Shah, the son of Emperor Aurangzeb, took the initiative to build it. The construction work stopped a few days after the work started. Later Shayesta Kha started working again. But after the death of Pori Bibi in 1684, the work remained unfinished. After Poribibi's untimely death, she was buried right in the middle of the Durbar Hall of the fort under construction and a three-domed mosque.

Pari Bibi (d. 1678) was the daughter of Shaista Khan,son of Asaf Khan IV and brother of Mumtaz Mahal. At the time of her death, she was betrothed to Prince Azam, who became the future Mughal Emperor Muhammad Azam Shah.[1] She was the grandniece of Nur Jahan, the main consort of the Mughal Emperor Jahangir.[2]

An important and historical monumental place which is situated in the heart of Puran Dhaka.
A great place to spend your afternoon with your family and friends. Traveling there is very easy and convenient.

Entry fee is 20tk for BD Citizen and 200tk or 2.5$ (aprx.) for foreigners.

Some decent quality restaurant is also available outside of the fort.

It became crowded on Holidays.

To know the history of Mughal Emperor you can visit this place.The Mughal prince Muhammad Azam, third son of Awrangajeb started the work of the fort in 1678 during his vice-royalty in Bengal . He stayed in Bengal for 15 months. The fort remained incomplete when he was called away by his father Awrangajeb.

Shaista Khan was the new subahdar of Dhaka in that time, and he did not complete the fort. In 1684, the daughter of Shaista Khan named Iran Dukht Pari Bibi died there. After her death, he started to think the fort as unlucky, and left the structure incomplete. Among the three major parts of Lalbagh Fort, one is the tomb of Pari Bibi.

After Shaista Khan left Dhaka, it lost its popularity. The main cause was that the capital was moved from Dhaka to Murshidabad. After the end of the royal Mughal period, the fort became abandoned. In 1844, the area acquired its name as Lalbagh replacing Awrangabad, and the fort became Lalbagh Fort.
