Our guide had us just stop in front and explained the history and architecture. Didn’t have the opportunity to go in as was on a tight schedule. But marvellous to stop and photograph. It’s a stunning building

I was on a group tour that did not go inside, but this building is lovely from outside, and all the photos don't do it justice. Make sure to go across the street to see its full glory as well.

This is face of the city so always full of tourists and pollution. Govt has to take necessary steps to preserve the charm of the place. Should restrict type of transport in that bazaar. Thts my opinion.

In my experience, early morning or late afternoon. The colour of the walls will be different in your photos depending on the position of the sun. Enjoy!

Yes, you can enter and look at the palace. It is on a busy shopping street so there's plenty of that.

You may take these services from your hotel/ any good travel agent to provide full car. As you are 06 person so that you should require Toyota Innova and cost should be approx 2500-3000 Rs.
