Liked the floating garden and the curved mirrors. Better not to visit early morning or late afternoon.

I liked the elephant ride up to the palace. The palace was interesting and beautiful. We didn't journey on up to the fort. Be prepared for vendors hawking cheap goods.

Good to know history of the city and enjoy your evening in a historical monument of the city. The palace is very different as seen in the day and in the night.

There is a place inside that was made to look like heaven, use the mirrors to take a photo it will... More
