  • If you are an art lover,then it is a must visit place. The beautiful carving on the wood and techniques used in it for ventilation and lightening are worth watching. Loved it.

  • Amazing historic beauty. Extremely well maintained and neat. A must-to-visit place. The tour takes 2-3 hours. Worth the visit. It would be good to have some energetic, enthusiastic guides who could greet the visitors with a smile and be patient with their queries.
  • Worthy place with so many staffs for 40rs ticket. You get to see the actual palace and surroundings. The wood works and the construction are marvelous. Can't imagine how much effort been put in each work. The staffs are explaining about each part. Not crowdy even in the weekend. You get to spend as much time you want until they close. Must visit place in the district.
