Ground Floor

The Corridor

There is a long corridor between the office room and the sitting room in the ground floor of Bangabandhu Bhaban. The main staircase of the house is connected to the corridor on the west side, which has a door in front of it. Bangabandhu used to walk down the stairs and travel to the office room and sitting room via the corridor below. On August 15, 1975, the killers attacked to assassinate the members of the three houses (house of Dhanmondi 32nd, house of Abdur Rab Serniabat, 37 Minto Road, Sheikh Fazlul Huq Moni’s house at Dhanmondi new 5/A, house 61). At present, on the eastern and western walls of the corridor, the portraits (photos) of Bangabandhu's house, including those who were brutally killed in Bangabandhu's house, have been hung.
