Lalbagh Fort

Recommendation by Lemi

This palatial fort, with its hidden paths and tale of heartbreak, was abandoned by the Bangladeshi royal family before it was ever finished. The project was then passed from the Mughal emperor’s son to a general, Shaista Khan. While he was at the helm of the project, Shaista Khan’s daughter, Pori Bibi, died. The project was abandoned once again, and for the final time. It was believed that every full moon, Pori Bibi returns to fill the unfinished fort with her singing and dancing.
