Tahkhana is located on the bank of a pond called Zehedulbala. Tahkhana (meaning cold building or palace) is located in Shahbajpur Union under Shibganj Upazila, 15 km away from Chapai Nawabganj district. According to popular accounts, Subahdar of Bengal, Shah Shuja, founded this palace as a ‘Temperature Control Unit’, mainly for comfort in winter. This building is now a protected monument.
