Dhaka's Lost Paradise

While Dhaka was losing its splendour after the fall of Mughal Empire, the local zamindars and nawabs under British rule tried to revive its past splendour as the city of gardens. Dhaka's Baldha Garden is one of the most magnificent examples of this beautification effort.

It has some of the rarest species of plants that can be found nowhere else in Bangladesh or even in this subcontinent.
