This place is good for art lovers and architecture students , but if you are not from the above two you can hardly spend 1 hour here. There is a good garden surrounding it, can be good for a family for an evening visit.

Worth the trip by rickshaw. Complex structure on 6 levels with nice sculpture and balances architecture. Nice to visit when the light plays on the sides.
