The idea is to select exemplary representatives of distintinctive epochs or cultures in the history of Dhaka. Five distinctive houses from five different areas have been selected from the greater Dhaka Metropolitan area for this phase of the project.
Moghbazar is a neighborhood in Dhaka, which originates from the Mughal era in Bengal. The area derives its name from the Maghs, the people in South Asia whose ancestors originate from the Rakhine state. Moghbazar is bounded by Eskaton on the west, by Ramna on the south, by Tejgaon on the north, and by the Malibagh-Siddheswari area on the east. Currently, the area presents a dense neighborhood with little to no open spaces or parks.
Exploring the house
A heritage building need not be a monument or landmark building; it can be representative of an epoch or period in the history of the city in many ways. Through this project, we have captured various perspectives in the form of virtual tours, timelines, stories, photographs, architectural features and locations.
