It is very huge and well maintained place with security and beautiful garden. Easily accessible and walk able for all ages. Great to security guiding people about history and other information. Archaeological dept should provide guide for all the places in the fort.

Very well maintained magnificent place. Out side it was hot and when we entered the mosque, it was so cool and soothing. The huge pillar placement was outstanding. Staff manning the place were very courteous and helpful in showing the place.
