Vawal rajbari(ভাওয়াল রাজবাড়ী) is located at the Joydebpur(জয়দেবপুর) of Gazipur(গাজীপুর) district. The Jomidar mansion(জমিদার বাড়ী) is a massive one, but right now it has been occupied by government. So even at the weekend, you'll find few people are doing their official tasks. These are kind of odd and just hinder me to explore. Why our government always does this?
This is a mammoth mansion having more than 350 rooms. Though its a Jomidar mansion(জমিদার বাড়ী), but still its looking like a modern edifice. Because it is not such old, possibly made 60/70 years back, or less. The GPS coordinate of the Rajbari(রাজবাড়ী) is (24° 0'4.16"N, 90°25'31.71"E).
How to Go:
There are several bus services available to go there from Dhaka. The Dhaka Poribohon(ঢাকা পরিবহন) is the best service from available. Also you can use other local buses as well. Using the bus, you have to first come at ShibBari(শিববাড়ী). From there using a rickshaw(10/15 taka) you can easily reach to the Vawal Rajbari(ভাওয়াল রাজবাড়ী).
Where to Stay:
No need to stay there. You can come back to Dhaka within the same day.
Where to Eat:
This place is almost like Dhaka. You can have your lunch at any quality restaurant from there. There are a lot such things around for tourists!
I didn't like this place at all, cause I don't like to disturb people who are working around. There is a public toilet available inside the premise. That helped me a lot.
