Paragraph: My Visit to a Historical Place

Historical place means a place which bears the testimony to history. So, visiting a historical place is truly interesting and exciting.

Last summer I had a wonderful time in Delhi. I visited there by train. I stayed there at my uncle’s house with my parents. Delhi is a place of historical interest.

I saw there the Red Fort, the Moti Masjid and the Qutub Minar. I also visited the parliament house, Santiban, the Rajghat and the Bijoyghat.

One day we went to Agra to visit the Tajmahal, one of the wonders of the world. Many tourists come to see this beautiful structure from different parts of the world.

It was built by Shah Jahan in memory of his beloved wife Mumtaz on the bank of the river Jamuna. The Taj has an area of about 1003 acres or 405 hectares.

It is made up of white marble. Taj Mahal is the finest example of Mughal architecture. It combines the art of Persia, Turkey and India.

It took 21 years and thousands of artisans and craftsmen to complete the Taj Mahal.

In fact, it looks like a dream in a moon-lit night. The Taj Mahal is considered one of the seven wonders of the world.

I like this place very much. It impressed me so much. The majestic beauty of the Taj will ever remain imprinted in my mind.


A historical place means a place which bears the testimony of history. It surely has some important past events worth notable in history. A visit to a historical place is not only interesting and exiting but also educative. It is my spontaneous habit to visit the historical places of our country whenever I get time and chance because it gives me much pleasure.

Last winter, I visited Bagerhat, a historical place. The place is famous for the Shat Gombuj Mosque and the Mazar of Khan Jahan Ali. I along with my two friends started our journey on the fixed day, and reached the destination after an eight hours journey. When we reached there it was night. So we spent the night at a residential hotel in Bagerhat. Next morning we went out to visit the Shat Gombuj Mosque and the Majar of Khan Jahan Ali. It is three miles away from Bagerhat and we reached there by rickshaw. We were surprised to see the architectural structures of the mosque. It stands on sixty pillars and has seventy seven exquisitely curved domes.

The area of mosque is very large and charming. There is a long tank near the mosque named ‘Ghoradighi’. The mosque has been declared as a world heritage site. In fact, this mosque is one of the greatest tourist attractions of Bangladesh. We came to know that this mosque was used not only as a prayer hall but also as a court of justice. We also felt ecstasy to see the unique design of the Mazar of Khan Jahan Ali. It stands on a raised ground. The tomb is made of cutting stone. There is a big tank in front of the mazar. There are some crocodiles in this big tank. When the caretaker called them, they came near. It was a wonderful experience. Then we visited many social works of Khan Jahan Ali such as roads, public buildings etc.

It was a great pleasure for me to be at Bagerhat. It was indeed a rewarding visit. The sweet memory of this visit will remain ever fresh in my mind.


Man is not satisfied with what he has seen and known. So he always tries to explore and observe the most wonderful sceneries of the nature. As a student and history lover, I have a keen interest to know
the historical places of my country. So, during the last autumn vacation, when I got an opportunity to visit a historical place in Bagerhat, I did not miss the chance. It is really a nice place because there is a big and beautiful building. Similarly, the mosque is beautifully decorated. So, it is very attractive mostly to the tourists and visitors. It is also considered as one of the most magnificent buildings in Bangladesh. The mosque is surrounded with different natural and artificial things. There is a big dighi near the mosque which is called the Ghora Dighi. I and all of my friends visited the Dighi. From the visit we tried to know many things about the social work of Khan Jahan Ali who was the founder of Shatgombuj Mosque. Actually, all the artificial creatures charmed us very much. Really we enjoyed the wandering very much and from it we gathered much knowledge.


Essay on A Visit To A Historical Place – I had been dreaming of visiting a place of historical interest. I learned many things from books about the beauty of ‘Lalbagh Fort’ in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh. I got the opportunity when our school was closed for Ramzan vacation.

I accompanied by some of my friends reached the Chittagong Railway Station in time and bought four tickets. We got into the second class compartment. We occupied four comfortable seats in the compartment. Then the train started for Dhaka at 11.00 p.m. and we reached the Kamalapur Railway Station at 5.00 a.m. After staying there for a while, we reached our appointed hotel.

Dhaka is an ancient city. During the reign of Mughal Emperor Jahangir, Dhaka was founded by Islam Khan, in the year 1610. It stands on the Buriganga. Many ancient historical places are still found there. At first, we went to see the historical ‘Fort of Lalbagh’. Md. Azam Shah, Subedar of Bengal and third son of Emperor Aurangazeb built this port in 1678 and named it ‘Kila Aurangabad’ but later it became commonly known as “Lalbagh Fort”.
Shaesta khan, another subedar of Bengal, added grandeur to this fort. The fort is surrounded by great walls. There is a grave of shaesta khan’s daughter, Bibi Pari, one mosque, and a common bathing place. This fort is about 2000 feet from east to west and 800 feet from north to south. The gorgeous three storied main gate is on the southern wall and adorned with Mughal architecture. There is also smaller gates on different walls of the fort. The walls are made of thin red bricks. The beauty of these ancient relics really beggars description.

After five days tour, we returned home. The visit to ‘Lalbagh Fort’ gave me a new vision and a new thought. That is, the majestic beauty of ‘Lalbagh Fort’ will remain ever fresh in my memory. Still, I feel, it was a remarkable visit indeed.
