Interesting architecture and well maintained

Site is clean, tidy and attractive. Not too large and accessible for wheelchairs. Entry costs INR500 for foreigners - notably higher than for locals but that's only fair.

Visited this place with my family last december along with our guide. It is a beautiful place not far from the city. Looks very nice and big inside even though it looks small from far. Wish we could have gone into the monument

It was busy but well worth seeing. Try and go earlier on in the day to avoid crowds, and you really don't need a guide
