Exquisite Architecture
The five storeyed facade entrusted with the elegant trellis work on the windows and small balconies with around 900 niches. The upper floor is reached through a raised ramp rather than stairs a device to facilitate movement by palanaquins carried out by servants. The beautifully carved doors opens into the majestic courtyard. The courtyard has a double story building on the three sides. There is a small archeological museum here. Only the eastern wing has three more storeys above, which are just a single room thick.
