You can enter the palace (little 'Golden door' on the side) included in the Square fee. Not much visible nowadays after the earthquake but the pool is magnificent. Inside the buildings there is also a Hindu temple, available only for hindus.

If you love history and architecture like me, then it’s a must visit place. The medieval palace has beautifully hand carved woods. The place has both historical and religious value. Visit the museum near by it and the palace museum.

Beautiful visit to the temple. We were impressed with the ability to build such a huge structure in an age without mechanical construction equipment. The palace has intricate work done and is very beautiful to look at.
