Best thing about it, you can enjoy the beautiful sight seeing near Yamuna river... It has amazing crafts on walls.. it has less crowd so one can enjoy the historical place peacefully
A place suitable for those who are interested in the British Colonial past. Although people with no such interest can also find it attractive but it is a must watch for those who are interested in the History of colonial era as the museum situated inside the building provides a perfect glimpse of the Colonial past.
If you love art and pretty old structures, this is almost as good as Taj Mahal with comparatively less people and better photo opportunities. Has colorful paintings on the wall and ceiling. There is tons of traffic on the way as you have to pass by the railway station so keep enough time at hand
More peace... Less crowd. Best place to spend 3hrs in peace near the bank of Yamuna River 😍😍
Entry requirements are as strict as the Taj - no food, electrical devices or headphones. Security will try and charge you 100 rupees to leave them in their office. Pretty building and a lot quieter than the Taj but less to see too.
