This sound and light show is much better compared to red fort "sound" show. But still not much is visible due to damaged walls are being used for projection. It clearly articulate history of Dilli. Kids don't enjoy it for sure.

Very beautiful architecture and amazing park to spend the one day holiday time. I usually visit this place. This place is very nice for yoga, meditation and photography for the Delhites.

it just used to be a hangout place for couples .The only thing worth going there was the boating in the lake besides it but that has also been closed now, so there is nothing to see apart from some old walls

Lovely place not far from Humayun’s Tomb so can be visited the same day. Entrance fee is about Rs 200. Not as big as the Red Fort but it has a lot of charm.
