The north part of the Ramna area is home to the National Museum, two important hospitals, HQ of Bangladesh Radio, Intercontinental Hotel, etc. Going further north leads to the Kawran Bazar area which I will post on later.

The Intercontinental Hotel (pictured a few years ago as the Sheraton) was the first luxury hotel in the city when it opened in 1966. After a stint as the Sheraton, it is now in the process of reverting to the Intercontinental brand, after a major renovation. This picture is by sajjadnayan.

The National Museum features ancient sculptures from the Pala and Sena dynasties, paintings from highly regarded 20th century Bangladeshi artists like Zainul Abedin, and other exhibits. A new national museum building is currently being considered.
