About 300 years old Imambara or Hussaini Dalan, located in Nazimuddin Road of Old Dhaka, which is a sub-district of Shiya community. In the 17th century, Mughal Emperor Shahjahan was built in the 17th century. The building was originally built in memory of Imam Hussain's Shahadat Baran in the heart of Karbala.
Many people fear the traffic congestion and the crowd, we do not want to go to Old Dhaka. So maybe there are so many spectacular places that are unseen. However, on any holiday, when there is no danger of traffic, then you can come back from Husaini Dalan in old Dhaka. Especially for those who are fascinated by the history and heritage, a place is very interesting for the Hussein Corridor.
This Hussaini Building is not too far from University of Engineering / BUET, Dhaka University, and Dhaka Medical College.
