The captain ended the day 105 not out after anchoring his side's innings with help from Malcolm Waller as the pair shared a fourth-wicket partnership of 127.
Robiul Islam was the pick of the Bangladeshi bowlers with two-for-56 but it was a largely frustrating day for the tourists as Zimbabwe closed on 217 for four.
Opener Timycen Maruma, wicketkeeper Richmond Mutumbani and all-rounder Keegan Meth were all selected for Test debuts for Zimbabwe while Elton Chigumbura was also drafted back into the team having not featured since the last time these sides met in Harare in 2011.
Shakib Al Hasan was back for the visitors after five months out through injury but Tamim Iqbal was not fit to return as he struggles with a thumb injury.
Mominul Haque, Shahadat Hossain and Sajidul Islam were all left out of the Bangladesh team but Haque jr made his first Test appearance since 2009.
Bangladesh won the toss and decided to bowl but it was slow going with Zimbabwe adding just 10 runs before a yorker from Robiul Islam sent Vusi Sibanda's (five) middle-stump cartwheeling in the ninth over.
Maruma had survived a couple of close lbw appeals early on but he was gone for 10 in the 15th over as Robiul Islam rattled him on the pads although the ball could well have been missing leg.
Haque jr made his return but was soon clattered for a mighty six from Taylor over long-off as his opening over yielded nine runs.
And Taylor and Masakadza saw Zimbabwe safely through to the interval but the latter could only add five to his score before he was dismissed for 25.
Haque jr was bowling much better after the break and got one to find Madakadza's edge with Mahmudullah taking the catch at the second attempt.
Tight-bowling from the visitors had slowed the run-rate down and it was not until the 17th over after the break that Zimbabwe claimed their first boundary of the afternoon, Taylor with a sweep over square-leg.
And the skipper brought up his half-century in the 57th over with a single, taking him to 50 off 123 balls with one four and one six.
In the third over after tea Waller nearly went in farcical circumstances as he was sent back by Taylor when attempting a single but slipped while well out of his crease. Luckily for him there was a mis-field and the danger was averted.
After that it was serene progress for the hosts and they managed to up the run-rate as well with Waller bringing up his 50 in the 78th over with a single off Sohag Gazi.
His half-century came off 119 balls with three fours.
The tourists took the new ball in the 80th over and it paid dividends after just 12 deliveries as Waller had his off-stump pegged back by Rubel Hossain to depart for 55.
But Taylor was not flustered by the loss of his partner and quickly moved to his century with a four off Robiul Islam which brought up the landmark off 200 balls.
Chigumbura (six not out) was clean-bowled by Hossain with five overs left in the day but was saved by a no-ball.
