An Ode To A Literary Den

Beauty Boarding is one of the very few enduring

boarding houses in the middle of hustle and bustle

Old Dhaka where one can spend a night or two with delectable delicacies amid a lush green courtyard.

Established in 1949, the historical place situated in a safely tucked away on Shris Das Lane of Old Dhaka still serving people with food and lodging at a reasonable amount of money ranging from Tk 250-550 a day.

Back in the 50's, Bangla Bazar was the hub of

publishing houses. So young writers and poets

chose the Beauty Boarding as it was one of the

only decent places to dine in the area.

The photographs were taken on Tuesday.
