Ahsan Manzil is a historical heritage site of Bangladesh

Ahsan Manzil is the property of Dhaka Nawab Estate. Ahsan Manzil is a historical heritage site of Bangladesh in old Dhaka.

It was the residence of the Nawabs family of Dhaka. The construction of the Ahsan Manzil was begun in 1859 and completed in 1872. Abdul Ghani named it Ahsan Manzil after his son Nawab Khwaja Ahsanullah. The newly built palace first came to be known as the Rang Mahal. When in 1952 the Dhaka Nawab State was acquired under the East Bengal Estate Acquisition Act, it became impossible for the successors of the Nawabs to maintain the palace due to financial constraints. Nawab Khwaja Habibullah started living at Paribag Green House soon after the acquisition of the zamindari. After Nawab family termination the Ahsan Manzil was long time abondoned.
