  • It consists of a complex of palaces, three floors with square courtyards, gardens and forts. Three palaces built by the Mpoyntella in the fortified island of potamisio State. The oldest was built in 1501 but today is dilapidated. The second, eikosi years later the Raja Mahal, 3 floors and square with exterior walls of hollow small holes to circulate the air. The third area is the Tzanchagkiri Mahal built in 1600 to accommodate for an evening of the Mughal Prince of Jahangir, as tradition wants. Although opponents of the law of hospitality was sacred and was accepted. The Palace is three-storied and prestigious. Externally there are tunnels with stone walls and hanging balconies, Interior dominates the courtyard with each floor to be more through the bottom to give a greater sense of open space corridors, passageways between compartments, decorated terraces, kiosks with vaulted ceilings like Lotus flowers, rooms with multiple exposures and domes with vertical grooves which once glittered from turquoise enameled tiles. All on hyperbolic point but in absolute harmony.
