In the past, many travelers visited Dhaka and their visual accounts are considered as an important tangible evidence of Dhaka’s History. Art works by Sir Charles D'Oyly, Frederick William and George Chinnery, who visited Dhaka around 1st half of the 19th Century, help us to reveal city’s past imagery. Even today, we mesmerize to see the photographs of their etching, paintings and sketches of historical Dhaka. The aim of this article is not to resurface those images again. We rather were keen to learn how present Dhaka is perceived and portrayed by the foreigners who traveled to Dhaka or somehow experienced the city recently.
