Well worth a visit. The size is spectacular. The decay also. The house is kept clean but the climate is taking its toll. We could only visit 1 half (the larger house).

We visited this 150 yr old house, half a section of which is converted to a museum of sorts . A housekeeper pockets 100 rupees per person and lets you in for the guided tour. It's not the information anecdotes which are charming but the...More
