The architectural magnificence of the building is breath-taking and invites locals and tourists to capture them through their lenses. Tourists are suggested to bring in cameras and various lenses to capture the mesmerising beauty of the... More

I was very impressed by the richness, variety and the quality of the collection. I think this place is undeservingly underrated in reviews. It's certainly worth 5 stars.
