Due to security concerns with the next door Presidential Palace the visitor can only see the House from the opposite side of a police barrier. Consequently, one need only allocate a few minutes for this attraction.

Most interesting and particular building in the city. Just a huge pity they did not allow us in. Anyway I strongly advice to find it and take a look.

Impressive, over-the-top designs on the exterior of the building. Make a point to pass by, as this is one of a very unique design.

We were stopped by (polite) guards from approaching the building but the chimeras we observed were fancy looking enough.

Certainly worth the short walk to see. The architect certainly meant to draw attention to his creation and I believe he certainly succeeded. While unable to enter the real show is outside anyway. Don't forget your camera !

No tourists are allowed, The site is officially closed, its guarded by the army and no one is allowed near it. Don't bother going.
