Saturday, 24th April 2010

Ruplal house(rooplal house) is located at Farashganj, just beside the bank of the buriganga river. It was built by the to prominent merchant brothers from dhaka, names are Ruplal and Raghunath Das. Its not found how old the building was, but may be its around 150-200 years of old.

There are two buildings built adjoining. Both of them are almost similar architectures, but the ruplal house was the beautifulone if you compare it with other one. Now a days Ruplal house is known as Zakir house, and the other one is known as Noorjahan house. Inside the both building you'll find spice and vegetable market.

The house has more than 50 rooms inside of it including a large hall room. All of the rooms are commodious. The column of the building is round, and the style is looks like the Greeks. Also the top of the building, specially the edges are too. But now a days the old trees are grown up at the wall of the building.

No one is available there to clean up that. But inside of the building you'll find unauthorized people are living. I have found some nest of crow's either. Recently I have heard that Bangladesh government has announced this as archaeological property, but no action taken to make the place safe. I think we still have some time on our hand to save the structure before all lost.

If you want to visit the place, then ask the rickshaw puller to drop you at sham bazar. Then ask anyone about the ruplal house. Many rikshawala doesn't know this house as ruplal house. So keep this thing on your mind.
