We stayed here for one night while on a tour. The place was quite impressive with its décor and immaculate grounds. The staff was quite friendly as well and went out of their way to help us. Definitely a place to come back to.

We have not seen amny young travellers and had not met any other Australians, mainly groups of French ...
... quite ornate on the outside and then when you went inside there were rats running freely everywhere. Because it was a temple you were not allowed to wear shoes inside but socks were allowed. The rats looked very diseased and unhealthy. The whole place was disgusting! After scrubbing our feet with disinfectant we then headed off to Bikaner, an old walled city. There we ...
