“Beautiful!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2012

The buildings were incredible in this area. We did not spend enough time milling around. I recommend taking your time and walking all the way down to the India Gate if you can handle the heat.

“worth a brief look! :)”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2012

Huge and impressive, but also another reminder of the great divide between the rich and the poor in India. It is beautifully detailed, we just decided to drive past slowly to take photos instead of getting out, I dont think we were able to go closer to visit at the time but I didn't think we were missing much. Quite near India Gate, and there's monkeys around nearby and nice gardens in front. Quite quiet. Worth checking out briefly!

“Be careful of opening times”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2012

A great place to visit but apparently the opening times are flexible depending on when/who is working... great photo opportunity in this opulent palace

“A quick look”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2012

You can't enter the building, but it's worth it to drive by and have a look. The gates are absolutely huge and you can ask your driver to drop you off quickly if you want to take a photo. Car's can't park there so your driver will need to drop you off and pick you up again, but it won't be a problem as you won't want to spend a lot of time here. Other than having a quick look, there's not much really to do.
