The place where Ahsan Manzil stands on the east is formerly known as Kumataruli of Islampur. It is located in the southern part of Dhaka city. Zamindar Sheikh Enayetullah created an entertainment named “Rang Mahal” in the middle of the eighteenth century in Jalalpur Pargana. Later, after the death of Sheikh Enayetullah a few days, his son Sheikh Matiullah, the luxurious promotion of “Rang Mahal”, was sold to the then French merchants.
Then there the French built their trade kuthi. The French built a quarry named “Lushzalla” in the northwest corner of this area (the present part of which is Ahsan Manzil). The quadrangle was relatively circular. After some time, in 1830, Khwaja Alimullah bought the kuthi from the French merchants and reformed for the purpose of living.
Khwaja Alimullah’s son, Nawab Abdul Gani, rebuilt the palace in 1859 and named the palace “Ahsan Manzil” under the name of his own son Khwaja Ahsanullah.
Later on 7 April 1888, a large number of parts of the Andhramhal of Ahsan Manzil collapsed due to a severe cyclonic storm, all of which were devastating by the devastating cyclone Ahsan Manzil. Later, Ahsan Manzil was rebuilt and a dome that is now seen on the high dome is added. At that time, there were not many high-rise buildings in Dhaka like Ahsan Manzil. So, from the far beyond, the dazzling dome of Ahsan Manzil attracted the attention of the people.
The part that is with the big dome is called the palace building, which was earlier in the colony, and there is another indoor mound next to it, also known as “Janaana”. The domed palace building is divided into two layers. The high octagonal angle dome on top of the round cell is raised in the middle. In the east, there is a bedroom salon, playing card room, library and three guest rooms and a nostrum, Hindu house room and several residential rooms in the west. The bottom floor has dining hall and durbar room, billiards room and treasury in the west.
The nawabs of Dhaka spent a lot of money on various welfare activities and other work, and they became indebted to the local moneylenders and the British Government. The responsibility of managing the zamindari in disadvantage was forced to hand over to Nawab Solimullah Court of Wards in 1907.
After the death of Nawab Silimullah in 1915, his own son, Habibullah, was replaced by his father, losing one of the zamindari parganas after the loan. Besides, other children are separated from their property. The collapse of the building resulted in gradual neglect of the building being abandoned. Then, when Nawab Habibullah died in 1958, his son Khwaja Hassan became Named after Asak. After the assumption of various speculations, after the various plans and commitments of different leaders, on September 20, 1992, the then Begum Khaleda Zia inaugurated the Ahsan Manzil museum.
