You can go there with a tour, on the sightseeing bus, or by taxi. There is no public transportation close. The closest is 25 minutes walking. You can see a majestic palace far away, ...looks regal, but a waste of time and energy.

This is a president's palace and is magnificent in details. Entry inside is restricted. One can have snaps with the guards and the horse mounted soldiers. A good drive way and a popular tourist attraction.

We can go just up to the gate . There is nothing much to do. Off course we can take some pics in front of the gate.

You can see the palace in the distance, take photos with the guards and outside the palace gates. I was fortunate to be there when the horse and guard change over occurred, rather formal proceedings.

We visited as photo stop of about 20 min. The palace is grand from outside. We managed to click few pics but thats just outside. Would love to see interiors though

It is a grand residence and looks huge from outside. I would have loved to have a look inside, but it is not allowed

Well-maintained displays. Beautiful furnishings and architecture. The new palace is many times this size and the building pales in size and opulence compared to Buckingham but still it's worth a visit. 45-60 minutes is enough
