English: Lalbagh Fort (লালবাগ কেল্লা), right in the middle of Old Dhaka, Bangladesh, was established in the 17th century by the Mughal Subehdar (সুবেদার = governor) Shayesta Khan (শায়েস্তা খাঁ) by the banks of the Buriganga (বুড়িগঙ্গা) River.
  • It was a bastion of Mughal soldiers to operate against frequent rebellions across Bengal.
  • During the 1857 Sepoy Rebellion (সিপাহী বিদ্রোহ), the first Indian uprising against the British, Indian soldiers in this fort rebelled as well.
  • It's now restored and preserved as a museum and gardens.
