Overview of Sardar Bari
This is the entrance to a mansion built by the Hindu zamindar of Sonargaon in 1901. Like most zamindar houses of this time, this was built by Indian masons but modeled on European palaces. This resulted in a curious blend of styles as seen in this brick entrance hall with baroque decoration and elaborate painting on plaster. On the upper level, European pillars flank Mughal arches.
