on which days is it open?

Just as empires rise and fall so do entry fees and opening hours! While we work as hard as we can to ensure the information provided here about Lalbagh Fort is as accurate as possible, the changing nature of certain elements mean we can't absolutely guarantee that these details won't become a thing of the past. If you know of any information on this page that needs updating you can add a comment above or now.
