Baliati Palace is a less known tourist spot in Bangladesh to the outer world located at Shaturia in Manikganj. It is one of the finest specimens of 19th century monuments of the Renaissance colonial style in Bangladesh. The founder of the Baliati Zaminder was one Govinda Ram Shaha, who was a big salt merchant in the middle of the 18th century. He left four sons: Dadhi Ram, Ananda Ram, Pandit Ram, and Golap Ram. They built all these buildings in the palace complex. The famous Jagannath College in Dhaka was founded and endowed by a member of Baliati family, Babu Kishori Lal Roy Chowdhury.
