Museum of the Rajas

Museum in Sylhet

This minuscule two-room museum located in the heart of Zinda Bazar was the former family home of mystic, poet and songwriter Dewan Hasan Raja Chowdhury (1854–1922), who has now become a Bengali folk-music legend of sorts. It contains memorabilia from his life, including some traditional Bengali musical instruments and a number of old photos and family portraits.
