The price is high considering you can only access a few of the over 1,000 rooms. Interesting to see this monument to one mans ego, which left the country bankrupted.

when we went there were 2 tours available - one in the morning and one in the afternoon. it's also worth noting that you'll need your passport when you visit as they need this for security measures.
Do you know if they except credit card for tour or do you have to pay cash
