Dont have to spend long. Guide is helpful for the history, architecture -- the building combines Hindu and Islamic elements. Can see in as little as 15 min or take 1 hour if you have someone to show you the details.

I have traveled here multiple times once at 6 AM in the morning and then later around 7 PM during Ramadan and then once at 5 PM before Eid. Everytime has been wonderful experience.

This was my second trip and it was still as imposing as I recalled. It was nice to wander around this and enjoy the architecture of it and just also people watch. We were asked to wear gowns to ensure we covered up too.
