Interesting to hear the history from our guide. Tranquil spot - some renovation/conservation work going on at present. Very quiet when we visited.

Part mausoleum and part palace in a beautiful setting on a hillside. Best time to visit is in the late afternoon when light is best and there are fewer tourists.

Yes they are, the whole area is open and the Tomb it's self is in an open area but not spectacular for photos. The surrounding areas are very photogenic so a camera is a must.
