A very grand entrace to the Palace and definitely a must-see and must-stop for first timer. Especially since it oversee the straits.

Even for a visit during daytime, it is a nice call. In half an hour you can explore the statues and take good photos. At night, the attraction has a light show.

The arched monument and the crescent sculpture is impressive but the real spectacular impression is received when viewed at night. Quite amazing. The colour changes highlight the area and the water fountains are great to watch.

Worth stopping here towards evening if you are wanting to get some good photos. Quite a popular spot, especially over the weekend. Fountains are quite pretty when lit up at night. Good parking on site.
