The Barun palace

Image hosted by

I went to the Barun palace last Saturday with a friend, as it is now open for the public. It was a good chance for taking good photos and enjoying the magic of architecture and the spirit of old days. The greenery and red flowers around the palace gave the whole place a royal touch.
When I was entering the main hall of the palace while crossing the stairs, I felt I am a princess where some doves were flying above me... mmm charming :)

The most dissapointing thing is that there are writings on almost every single wall, with chalk and black and red markers. I can understand that the chalk can be removed, but I can't imagine what can be done with the colored markers. It is really bad! Bad awi!
They just take your ID on the gate, and you take it back when you are leaving.
It was an awesome experience.
More photos.

I agree with you ya Emi, it is devastating...Plus ba2a, the palace is completely empty, there is nothing what_so_ever. Even the bathrooms, you can easily find a bath tub inside..bas mafeesh toilet seats...not even a single one..7ata dol "bekh"
