  • There are repair works in the complex. Nevertheless the garden is very beautiful. It is worth paying a short visit. Recently emerged (not completely, though) from a long restoration process, the 40-columns-palace is located in a beautiful Persian garden, and hosts huge mural paintings, with historical meaning - in the inner side, and an impressive mirror arcade - in the outer side... Do not count twice, the pavilion has only 20 columns ;-) should visit very beautiful arts
  • Really beautiful place, it's nice to see during day but even better at night. The only problem is some people litter and some guys are constantly catcalling. Overall a nice experience. There are good food and drink stalls nearby to enjoy
