Strange and wonderful collection of traditional and early modern artifacts from the last imperial leaders before the Soviet era.

Yet another fancy temple to see some beautiful palaces and monuments. Overall, I really loved the structure of the palace: Shaped like a Shan or mountain.

This is a nice place to understand the history and see the local handicrafts as well as some nice murals. Needs 45-60 minutes for a leisurely meandering through the rooms as well as the courtyard.
