Not much to see here so we didn't pay the admission to enter and shot our photos from the outside. You can see the site through the bars of the iron fence. More convenient to visit than the tombs of Mustafa Kamil however.

Great Collections.. but no proper explanation or proper guide. Need more english translation posters for better understanding. At the entrance, no sign board available.
