Thank you. Ahsan Manzil is a nice colonial era mansion, and was home to the most important family in Dhaka at the time. Another picture of this complex:

When I myself was a child living in the older part of Dhaka, there were many colonial era mansions. I lived in one of them, that my great grandfather built. Unfortunately almost all of them have either been torn down (including the house I lived in), or survive in advanced states of neglect. Ahsan Manzil is the rare exception.

Here is a picture of my family house, taken not long before it was torn down, about ten years ago:
