This guidebook focuses on 25 buildings in Dhaka, representing different architectural
phases since the Mughal era, beginning in the early 17th century. (The earliest surviving
structure in Dhaka is a small pre-Mughal mosque in Old Dhaka.) The list is neither
exhaustive, nor necessarily representative of the “best” in town. Rather, the goal is to
narrate the stories of the city through the buildings that played transformative roles in its
architectural formation. The featured buildings (a) communicate larger ideas about Dhaka’s
building tradition, (b) represent an architectural trend, (c) influence the architectural
scene, and (d) offer a spatial story in the evolution of this city.
