This guidebook focuses on 20 buildings in Dhaka, representing different architectural phases since the Mughal era, beginning in the early 17th century. The list goal is to narrate the stories of the city through the buildings that played transformative roles in the city's architectural formation. The featured buildings communicate larger ideas about the city's building tradition, represent an architectural trend, influence the architectural scene and offer a spatial story in the evolution of the city. As a traveller's resource, this guidebook combines nuanced architectural and urban histories of these buildings, along with maps, drawings, pictures, and practical information.
