The one storied structure along the boundary of Abul Hasnat Road was originally built for administrative purposes and quarters for staff and visitors. Later around 1980, they were turned into small shops and some have been used for other domestic functions. Some of the shops house ‘kacchi biryani’ stores.
‘Kacchi biryani’ is a special meal made with rice and meat which is cooked together in a particular technique. In general, old dhaka is famous for serving this delicious meal and many people from all over the whole city visit these special biryani shops, attached to Haturiya house unaware of the heritage value the structure holds.
