This abandoned mansion, ornate and decrepit, is typical of the buildings in Panam Nagar, a once-affluent part of Sonargaon in Bangladesh. Sonargaon was the capital of Bengal during the 16th Century and later came under British rule. During the 19th Century, wealthy Hindu cloth merchants constructed colonial-style homes inspired by European architecture, but the area fell into ruin after the Indo-Pakistani War of 1965 and today is a barely inhabited ghost town.
