    The Hamlet of Sonargaon was the capital of the fifteenth-century Bengal ruler Issa Khan. Once an important trading and political center, Sonargaon boasts architecture of the Sultanate, Mughal, and colonial periods. The Sonargaon historic city, located near the present-day capital of Dhaka, includes several Mughal monuments—among them the Sonakanda River Fort, the Panch Pir Mazar Shrine, and Ibrahim's and Abdul Hamid's Mosque. British colonial architecture preserved in Sonargaon includes the Ananda Mohan Piddar House, and other street-front houses.

    Recent renovations and cleanups (long a public demand) by the antiquities dept. have restored some of the lost beauty of the historical grounds and structures which are open for visitors, which includes an on-site museum.
