It is a grand residence and looks huge from outside. I would have loved to have a look inside, but it is not allowed

Old palace, viewed from impressive gates, with a lot of history, and sometimes something happening like a ceremony depending on the time of day and day of the month.

Unlike at the Old Palace, the front gate here is kind of an "imposing structure" with built-in areas for some ceremonial or costumed guardsmen (saw about four of them and two were on horses); and yes although there's no public entry past the front gate,...More
