In the absence of Landlord Sudhir Chandra Das, his 2 sons Prahlad Saha and Nalini Mohan Saha looked after the house. In 1971, Prahlad Saha and many of his family members were killed by the Pakistani military. Later, Nalini Mohan migrated to India with the rest of her family. After many years of independence, he returned to Bangladesh and took the responsibility of beauty boarding. Currently, Tarak Saha takes care of it. This old-style house was built on 0.55-acre land. It has a food hotel and a small temple inside the building. You have to pay 20 Taka to visit the top of the house. The place is not that big. The stairs to the roof are closed. There are several species of plants here. You can taste old-style Bengali cooked food in this hotel. They serve food on steel plates, and glass, which I like very much. You can have lunch here. Hope you won’t be disappointed.
