Bahadur Shah Zafar Park

Bahadur Shah Zafar Park is a park located in old Dhaka, Bangladesh. Originally established by the British in early nineteenth century, this park was previously known as Victoria Park. The name was changed after independence from the British in 1947 in respect for the last emperor of Mughal India, Bahadur Shah Zafar.
