When you enter the gate you will see a golden temple to your right, head left towards the theater, that is where the cloak room is. You must leave your bags in lockers there (free). You can not take bags, ipads, cameras, water inside the...More

If you have plenty of time and don't know what to do then you may spend some time here. I just spent some time walking around the compound without entering the museum, not buying the ticket since i was not planning to enter the museum.

It is a grand palace. There are many museum pieces maintained in the palace. No bags to be carried and no photographs allowed inside.

Interesting building and museum contents once belonging to royal family. I especially liked the cars - Lincoln Continentals. But entry is a hassle - no back pack, no photos, no shoes. Shoes I get for the wooden floorboards, but i don't get why the women...More
