Loved it. The tour visits just four rooms however do not be put off. Each room is packed with furniture and photos. It includes the main hallway by the library, really impressive.

Gardens outside are worth a visit

The Institute is amidst a beautiful landscape. Institute own guide will explain the history of the Institute and will show the Interir of the building.

This place is nice. It’s a shame that you need to pay to enter the grounds of the building and if you like to enter the building you need to buy an extra ticket on top of the first entrance ticket. The architecture is quite nice, and the grounds are very clean and welcoming. The view from the grounds is also very nice. The Himalayan mountains can be seen at one spot, and overall the views from the grounds are beautiful.

Very old building but full of books. Many scholars visits this to gain knowledge. Nice and big park.
