Compared to other monuments in Mandu, this place will not attract you much. It is not well-maintained either and can be avoided.

It's a chamring place which you can imagine being haunted by ghosts of it's previous inhabitants - the palace (actually a shop) definetely has it's own atmosphere :) There are two beautiful wells neaby (baodi in local language) - don't miss them!
