Bashundhara City Shopping Complex - Dhaka

One of the newest shopping complexes in Dhaka is called Bashundhara City. It has 13 floors and has about 2000 or more shops in it. The shops are mostly small boutique types and many of them sell the same sort of thing. One of the shops is actually called Robin's Heaven!!! The shopping centre is very clean, modern and tidy by Dhaka standards. Its like entering a different world. There are escalators and glass enclosed lifts that run up and down the central atrium. The atrium has an amazing coloured glass dome at the top. Here are some photos that I took of some of the architectural features of the complex.

Unique Car Sculpture in Dhaka

In the Tejgaon Commercial Area of Dhaka there is a unique and very clever car sculpture made out of bicycle chains, car parts and other scrap metal. Its construction is quite amazing. Here are some photos that I took of it.
