Sitlai Rajbari

East of town, on the banks of the Padma River, Sitlai Palace, dating from 1900, is a grand rajbari that’s fairly well preserved. Today it’s occupied by a drug company, so you can’t see the 30-room interior. The exterior is interesting, however, with a broad staircase flagged with white marble, leading to a second-storey arched portico.
