Baliati Palace: Baliati Zamindarbari (Palace) is one remarkable example of the 19th Century palaces of Zamindars in Bangladesh. A fascinating set of buildings of their Zamindarbari, extends the reputation of the splendor and prosperity of the Saha family throughout undivided Bengal. At present, the palace has four inner blocks or 'Mahals'. Each of the blocks situated around an oblong open courtyard, behind the front line buildings. In the north, there is a big excavated water tank with landing masonry ''ghat'', that leads long succeeding steps towards the water below. On the other side of the tank there are outhouses, servant quarters and stables. The imposing central block with corridors on both sides is given highest importance. The broad staircase leading to the upper storey, is a distinguishing feature of the palace complex; the reception hall is dotted with artifacts around it, odd bits of art and crafts overlooked by a hanging chandelier from top of the ceiling.

Dhamrai Palace: Built in 1853, following the acquisition of tax collection rights by Govinda Roy Chowdhury, a grocer, Govinda Bhavan is one of the earliest of the remaining Zamindarbaris in Bangladesh. With either the profits from his business, or with loans which also financed the building of such a suitably impressive residence, before the tax revenues began to flow. Since he had six sons the palace was constructed with six pavilions. The residence is still occupied by the family of Zamindars, which offers something of a picture of life, with different branches of the family occupying different parts of the residence. Members of the family, who built the palace in the 1850's may show you around what is left of this once great, Zamindarbari.

Brass Factory in Dhamrai: Where Brass work is still undertaken in the 'vanishing wax' method, that has been used in the Ganges Basin, since the early development of metal in Gangetic Plain Civilisation. It is one of the earliest between 4,000 and 5,000 years ago. We will also visit the National Monument of Bangladesh, which is built in memory of the 1971 liberation war martyrs.
