Wow is what you will say when you see this palace. You can’t get much closer than the high fence and ornate gates but it is quite impressive to see. Take a picture or some jump shots and then move along to explore the parks...More

You can't go in, and the people aren't allowed in either. Look close and you can see the broken windows they don't spend the money to fix because they never let anyone in the building.
