Well worth the effort of getting to the tower. Nice views of the valley. You can either take the funicular or hike. Fun to watch the Peacocks roaming around the top.

It is a very nice tourist attraction. You can see the whole city from the tower. The funicular is operated very efficiently, so do not bother about the line, it is going quite fast.
