Touring around Lalbagh Fort and mosque in Old Dhaka.

Lalbagh Fort in Old Dhaka-built in the Mogul empire. There were separate lines for men and women to buy tickets and foreigners had to pay 100 Taka versus 10 Taka for Bangladeshis.

Star Mosque in Old Dhaka-women have to wait to be invited in by a man to enter a mosque. The yellowish tiles on the left date back to the Mogul empire. The white tiles on the right are newer.
