The largest and the busiest city in Bangladesh, Dhaka may seem like a regular, commercial city to you in the first glance but it's much more. It's a place that grows on you with time, and when it does, it's difficult to forget its many experiences. If this is your first visit here, you can choose among the many Dhaka day tours. The tours will help you see the city in its entirety and one can also choose customised tours according to individual preferences. Lal Bagh Fort, Liberation War Museum and Ahsan Manzil are some of the must-visit spots in Dhaka. Do include Baitul Mukarram Mosque in your itinerary. It is the 10th largest mosque in the world and is a sight to behold. Sonargaon is another wonderful place to include in your itinerary. An erstwhile administrative centre of Bengal, the site makes for an interesting visit outside Dhaka. Sitara Mosque is named so because it is decorated with a million stars and is a delight to explore. There are a number of options to stay in Dhaka and you can choose one according to your budget or preference.

The mosque has a good setting placed in a small garden and burials in front. In front of all this is a huge lake excavated during the time of the Nawabs and provides a great setting all throughout the year. Unfortunately this is yet to be taken over by ASI and not maintained well. The Motijheel Mosque and cemetery has a very important place in the history of Murshidabad. Mawazesh Md. Khan, son-in-law of Nawab Ali Vardi Khan and subedar of then Bengal, Bihar and Odisha, and Ekramoddulla, younger brother of Nawab Sirajuddullah, are buried here. Motijheel is a horse-shoe shaped lake. And in a palace adjoining it, which now lie in ruins, was the home of Warren Hastings when he became the political president at the Durbar of the Nawab Nazim. The tombs lie to the east of the mosque.
