This is an excellent monument not much tourist visit it due to problem in connectivity and less awareness . In pictures u cannot make out the actual size of this gigantic structure. Once at the top u realize the massiveness of this architectural wonder.

One of the great sites of the world --- better than I expected and I expected a lot. I recommend to everyone. We were one of the only western tourists at this site which was surprising to me.

A wonderful heritage monument....worth visiting, Beautiful gardens well maintained
Need to climb up atleast 6-7 floors to reach the top

Amazed at the whispering gallery, our guide asked everyone inside to maintain silence & demonstrated how sounds as low as whispers reach the other side..truly an architectural marvel

There is a museum inside the premise which was closed on the day we visited ( dont remember the day of the week )

The sheer size of this building given that it was built in the 16th century is a wonder. Symmetry and the engineering behind the architecture is impressive. Its a experience in its own.
