Trip to National Parliament Building

$70 tour starting at

Trip to National Parliament building is an unforgettable journey through an architectural marvel and Its striking design.

The National Parliament Building, or Jatiya Sangsad Bhaban, was designed by the world-renowned American architect Louis Kahn. This is the most notable modern building in Bangladesh and well regarded by many as the finest work of Kahn. Although the typical bold geometrical patterns are distinctive from the outside, visiting the interior, including the octagonal Assembly Hall, is a special treat.

Access to the National Assembly is very restricted. We arrange exclusive tours to the inside of the famous Parliament building with a minimum of 10 working days prior notice. Usually, a visit inside the parliament is about an hour or less. It is also possible to arrange a long time visit permission for Architects or someone having a special interest in this building. Any foreign and local nationals must obtain permission through a specific application form, which you will receive from us or the parliament’s official website. Visitors should fill up and send us the signed Application form along with a copy of their passport and visa.

All visitors are advised to avail of a visa from their home country to attach the visa information to the parliament visit application form. Any visitor planning for a visa on arrival and willing to visit the parliament within a few working days of their arrival may not assure a visit due to incomplete information on the prior application.

The parliament is open for visitors from Sunday to Thursday and closed on Friday, Saturday, and other government holidays.

Please note that we are not allowed to carry any kinds of electronic devices, firearms, books, bags, and any drinks other than water inside the parliament building. We can leave all our belongings and cameras in the vehicle right before the parliament house’s main entrance/ security check post, and you can take photographs after coming back from inside of the building.

    National Assembly Building, Dhaka
    Feb 2019 • Friends
    We are American architects who came to visit Louis Kahn’s iconic National Assembly Building in Dhaka. Royal Bengal Tours arranged a two-day tour of the city, helped us gain visas-on-arrival at the Dhaka airport, and provided a knowledgeable guide and excellent driver to take us to the National Assembly Building and other significant architectural and historic sites. We were safely driven everywhere, from the airport to our hotel, to our selected sites, and at the end back to the airport. If you’ve ever driven in Dhaka you know how valuable this service can be, not to mention the knowldege and insights that Jewell and his staff provided. We highly recommend Royal Bengal Tours.

    Royal Bengal Tours is great. I 100% recommend them. My wife and I were visiting Bangladesh for the first time and had limited time for research and our visit. RBT’s Jewel was very responsive by e-mail, and made short-notice arrangements for us to visit the Parliament complex. Mithu, our guide, was all-around excellent. He was friendly, very informative and knowledgable, a good communicator, and very adaptable to our needs. He provided many insights about the country, city, and people. After beginning our tour, we realized that we had some different priorities concerning what to see, and Mithu adapted our itinerary wonderfully.

    We took a full day tour. There was some walking. The Parliament building was very interesting. Old Dhaka was busy, chaotic, full of sights and sounds and smells. Traffic was horrible in the afternoon, so be prepared to sit in grid lock sometimes.

    Had a great day with Afridi. He was so kind and did a great job taking around the city. Especially having access to go inside the parliament building. If I come back to Dhaka I would use royal bangal tours again. Highly recommend. Make sure you ask for Afridi!
