Nice architecture of minars. You can see them from railway station also. It is told that if one minar starts shaking other also shakes. But for safety or other reasons, they have stopped entering the minars.

You need to travel to this place for rickshaw. You cannot travel for vehicle. It is very inside. There are 2 minarets. If you shake , it shakes, but they dont allow, since it gets damaged . You can come and view the place
