Jatiyo Sangshad Bhaban is the National Assembly Building of Bangladesh, located in the capital Dhaka. It is an architectural masterpiece created by Louis I. Kahn and one of the largest legislative complexes in the world. It houses all parliamentary activities of Bangladesh. Construction of the Jatiya Sangsad Bhaban was begun in 1961 by the then Government of Pakistan as a permanent building for the federal legislature of both West and East Pakistan. However, it was the eighth (and last) session of the second parliament of Bangladesh that first used it on 15th February, 1982 after its construction was completed on 28th January of the same year.
