The Lalbagh Palace – the fort itself is completely full of the glory of the Mughal period. In addition to these monumental designs, the Archeology Department plans to design the Museum of Lalbagh Fort several years ago with the intention of shedding more light on the lifestyle of the Mughal period. Placing new buildings in or near ancient ruins is against the archaeological practice; Therefore, the museum has been established within a short span of the two-storeyed Durbar Hall built by Shahzada Azak. They have been used as exhibition space without altering the original features of the interior panels and niche inside the room.
From the English period to the independence period, many valuable artifacts were smuggled out of the country and due to lack of proper protection, the goods of the Mughal period were extremely scarce in this country. Nevertheless, the Department of Archeology has been able to collect some artifacts in the last few years. All of these artifacts include armaments, manuscripts, coins, pottery, carpets, handicrafts, etc. during the Mughal period.
Only two of the exhibits are closely related to the history of Lalbagh Fort. Another is the inscription on black stone found on the loose stone at Paribir’s shrine and a portrait of Azam Shah. The rest is not directly related to Lalbagh Fort, but is associated with a long history of the Mughal period. Remarkably, most of these things are in the last days of the Mughal period.
