Great to see artifacts and furniture for the era of this palace. You will see silver jewelry boxes and silver doors. There are beautiful coloured rooms.
We went on a weekend and it was very crowded. You will need to take your shoes off at the entrance of the palace and bag them for retrieval when the tour is done.
It was hard to stay and admire some of areas as it was so crowded.
Pictures are not allowed inside the palace.

Thank MrsSammy

Definitely a one-time watch. The entire trip will take around 1-2 hours. Lot of history to look for. Very well maintained.

Best visited with a guide to appreciate more of the site. However, lots of information in English so you could go without if necessary

Beautiful palace with an amazing history. Well worth your time. The numerous halls and treasures are absolutely stunning. We were there concurrent with a number of school holidays but did not feel congested or rushed. Check it out.
