Curzan Hall At Dhaka
Curzon is a historic building located in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, which is recognized as antiquity. It is currently being used as a classroom and examination hall for some of the science and biology molecules of Dhaka University. On February 14, 1904, the foundation stone was laid by George Curzon, then Viceroy and Governor-General of India. After the partition of Bengal in 1905, Dhaka became the capital of East Bengal and Assam. Curzon Hall was then used as the office of the provincial capital. The first public protest against making Urdu the sole state language was from this historic Curzon Hall building. After the repeal of the Partition of Bengal in 1911, Curzon Hall came to be used as the Dhaka College building. After the establishment of Dhaka University in 1921, this building came to be used as a science building of Dhaka University.
