  • One of the most impressive palaces I have ever seen. Quite big and open to go till the top of palace.
  • Great palace. It has some great colored wall paintings of that era.
  • Really nice place. And the best view on the river
  • Great monument.
  • Maybe it's not so good looking as it's neiberhood -Jahangir Mahal. But you shouldn't omit this place.
