The place has a huge collection of antique paintings, artifacts, vases, sculptures, etc. Although, it is not maintained by the government, it is still not maintained quite well. Located in a crowded street, so do ask the locals for directions.

The palace is old but very nice. Small zoo in the backyard with some poor animals living in too small cages in my opinion. You need a certificate to enter (really dont know why). Inside they insist you take a "guide" that walk with you...More

You dont really need it. It just a trick to make you pay the guard. Give hom some money and he will let you in. No one really goes to get the stupid permit from the other side of town. The "guide" inside will also ask you... More
