It is a place of peace, a large green field in the village and about 250 types of trees all around. An oval-shaped swimming pool also remains there. The most attractive thing is the sculpture of the little mermaid existing in a water preserver. Sculptures of a monster and dinosaur are also over there. There is a small island with sitting arrangement in the middle of the lake. Besides, there are three bungalows with shalban, orchid garden. In such a place day after day can be spent without any monotony.

Yes, these are the scenario of Nuhash Palli, which was like paradise to Word Magician Humayun Ahmed. Visiting the place you can feel it. Maximum of the roads of Piruzali Village of Gazipur are covered by dense Shalbon forest. After passing 25 km way through light and shadow you will reach Nuhash Palli. The place founded on 22 Bighas of land in 1997 has extended into about 40 Bighas at present. Actor Dr. Ejaj had helped to buy this extended land.

The place was named after Nuhash, one and only son of Humayun Ahmed and his first wife Gultekin Khan.

Humayun Ahmed passed a lot of time by walking in Nuhash Palli. Here he could feel the nature so closely. In the northern side of the place, there is a bridge. In the middle of the pond tent was made on the artificial island. The first daughter of Humayun Ahmed and Meher Afroz Shawon was died before coming in the light of the world. Humayun Ahmed named her ‘Lilabati’. The pond also named after her.

Green field of the Palli, water of Lilabati, herb garden, Shade of Tamarisk tree, writing table, favorite photographs hanging on the wall all remained the same. But Humayun Ahmed is missed today.

Still there you found the bust sculpture of Humayun Ahmed, his cemetery, stoned mermaid at Sharobar, sculpture of prehistoric animals, swimming pool- where Sunil Gangopadhyay and Humayun Ahmed swam together, replica of chess key, tea house, and various eye-catching things. Including ‘Bhut Bilash’, ‘Brishty Bilash’, there are total three bungalows in the Palli.

You can pay homage to Humayun Ahmed's grave by passing through the narrow road that goes a little left, without entering the Nuhas Ralli.
