It is nice place to explore. Nice architect . 2 to 3hr time is enough to visit. Take a guide for convenience otherwise you cannot explore properly .

This place is quite different. I recommend taking a guided tour here. The guide will tell you about the stories behind the place which is quite interesting. The architecture is beautiful. A must visit place.
