My First Visit to Dhaka

Dhaka is an old city. It remained an imaginary place to me so long because I could not see it with my own eyes. I had an opportunity, however, to see the capital of my dream when my uncle invited me to pay a visit to Dhaka and to be his guest. I availed myself of the opportunity and paid a visit to Dhaka during the last summer. During my short stay at Dhaka, I moved from place to place by bus, rickshaw and baby taxi. When I passed through Nawabpur Road, I was struck by the dazzling sight of the big shops. I went to Gulistan, the D.I.T. Avenue, and Motijheel Commercial Area. The wide and spacious National Stadium, the Baitul Mokerram Mosque, the tall and big buildings of Motijheel Commercial Area, the G.P.O and the Bangladesh all impressed me very much. Next morning I visited the Lalbag Killa, Bara Katara and Chhota Katara. These are the remnants of the Mughal rule. Here old touches and memories hover all around. At Lalbag we also saw the Tomb of Pari Bibi, the daughter of Shaistha Khan. On the way we saw the Dhakeswari Temple built by Ballal Sen. But the New Town, the Sher-e-Banglanagar, the latest extension of Dhaka and Tejgaon Industrial area presented a different sight altogether. Everything about them is new and modern. The Medical College, the University, Salimullah Muslim Hall, the High Court, the Engineer’s Institute, the Secretariat, the Assembly House, Hotel Sheraton and Sonargaon are all designed according to modern taste. The Ramna Garden, the Suhrawardy Udyan and the beautiful lawns attracted me much. I also visited the New Market, Azimpur Colony, the Gulshan Model town and derived much pleasure from their charming sights. I also went to Zia International Airport and saw planes taking off and coming down. My visit to Dhaka was of great interest. It has widened my knowledge and experience. It has given me practical knowledge which books can never give and has brought past history in vivid form before my mind’s eyes.

My First Visit to Dhaka

Dhaka, an ancient city, had long remained a distant and mystical place to me, as I had never set eyes on it before. But I was granted an opportunity to fulfill my dream of visiting the capital when my uncle cordially invited me to stay as his guest, which I eagerly seized upon during the past summer. My explorations of the city were conducted by means of various modes of transportation such as buses, rickshaws, and baby taxis. While traveling along Nawabpur Road, I was struck by the magnificent spectacle of grand shops. I also toured the D.I.T. Avenue, Gulistan, and the bustling Motijheel Commercial Area. The immense National Stadium, the Baitul Mokerram Mosque, the towering buildings of Motijheel Commercial Area, the General Post Office, and the Bangladesh Parliament all left me in awe. The next day, I visited the Lalbagh Fort, Bara Katra, and Chhota Katra, which are remnants of the Mughal era and where vestiges of the past still linger. At Lalbagh, we viewed the Tomb of Pari Bibi, daughter of Shaistha Khan. Along the way, we also encountered the Dhakeswari Temple, erected by Ballal Sen. However, the New Town, Sher-e-Banglanagar, the most recent addition to Dhaka, and Tejgaon Industrial Area, offered a strikingly different appearance, with modern design and technology. The Medical College, the University, Salimullah Muslim Hall, the High Court, the Engineer’s Institute, the Secretariat, the Assembly House, Hotel Sheraton, and Sonargaon all reflect contemporary tastes. The greenery of Ramna Garden, Suhrawardy Udyan, and their beautiful lawns captured my attention. Additionally, I visited the New Market, Azimpur Colony, and the Gulshan Model town, all of which provided charming views. Lastly, I had the chance to observe planes taking off and landing at Zia International Airport. This visit was an exceptional and educational experience, surpassing the theoretical knowledge provided by books, bringing the history of the past vividly before my eyes.

MY VISIT TO DHAKA

Dhaka, an ancient city with a rich history, had always been a distant place to me, existing solely in my imagination due to my inability to see it in person. However, an opportunity presented itself when my uncle extended an invitation for me to visit Dhaka as his guest. I eagerly seized this chance and embarked on a journey to Dhaka during the previous summer. Throughout my brief stay in Dhaka, I explored the city by bus, rickshaw, and baby taxi, allowing me to witness its diverse facets. As I traversed Nawabpur Road, the sight of grand shops left me awestruck. I ventured to places like Gulistan, D.I.T. Avenue, and Motijheel Commercial Area. The National Stadium, with its vast expanse, the magnificent Baitul Mokerram Mosque, the towering structures of Motijheel Commercial Area, the imposing General Post Office (G.P.O), and the emblematic Bangladesh, all left an indelible impression on me. On the following morning, I visited historical sites such as Lalbag Killa, Bara Katara, and Chhota Katara, remnants of the Mughal era that exuded an aura of antiquity. Lalbag also revealed the Tomb of Pari Bibi, the daughter of Shaistha Khan. Along the way, I encountered the Dhakeswari Temple, constructed by Ballal Sen. In contrast, the New Town, Sher-e-Banglanagar, the latest extension of Dhaka, and the Tejgaon Industrial area offered a strikingly different perspective. These areas embodied modernity in every aspect, featuring contemporary institutions like the Medical College, the University, Salimullah Muslim Hall, the High Court, the Engineer’s Institute, the Secretariat, the Assembly House, Hotel Sheraton, and Sonargaon, all designed with a modern aesthetic in mind. I found solace and beauty in the Ramna Garden, Suhrawardy Udyan, and the lush lawns. My exploration extended to New Market, Azimpur Colony, and the enchanting sights of Gulshan Model Town. Visiting Zia International Airport was a highlight, as I watched planes take off and land. My visit to Dhaka was not only of great interest but also incredibly educational. It broadened my horizons, providing practical knowledge that books alone could never impart. It breathed life into the pages of history, allowing me to witness the past in vivid detail before my very eyes.

We went to Dhaka by train. I stayed with my brother in the Nazrul Hall for seven days. I visited Dhaka College, the . Sangsad Bhaban. the National Museum the National Memorial, the National Zoo .af Mirpur, the Dhaka High Court, the Dhaka Stadium, the Shishu Park, the Zia International Airport, the Supreme Court, the Lalbag Fort, the Ahsan Manjil and many other historical places with my elder brother. I also enjoyed many high-rise buildings. But I observed acute air pollution, water pollution, sound pollution and odour pollution in Dhaka city which is very harmful to a happy and decent life. However, the visit was very enjoyable. So in order to improve kingdom of knowledge and gain new experience every student should visit an historical city like Dhaka during holidays. It is true, only by reading books, one can't achieve proper knowledge to reach the highest pick of success in life.

Despite these challenges, my visit was enjoyable and enlightening.

The very name Dhaka had always intrigued me, filling my mind with fantasies. But it remained just a distant dream until my uncle invited me to visit and stay with him last summer.

During my brief stay in Dhaka, I explored the city using various modes of transportation like buses, rickshaws, and baby taxis.

Everything here was modern and sleek, from the Medical College to the High Court and the Secretariat. The lush greenery of Ramna Green and Suhrawardy Udyan, along with the well-maintained lawns, added to the city's charm. I also had the chance to visit places like New Market, Azimpur Colony, and Gulshan Model town, each offering its own unique allure.

One highlight of my trip was visiting Zia International Airport, where I watched planes take off and land, adding to the excitement of my adventure.

My visit to Dhaka was not just a sightseeing tour; it was an enriching experience that broadened my horizons and provided me with practical knowledge. It brought history to life before my eyes, giving me a deeper understanding of the city and its significance.
