The yellow walls are now mostly peeled off, in some places exposed bricks, the green door frames no longer retain their brilliance in the corners of the balconies covered with wild vines. The stairs are quiet, opposite the door that is always closed, making the space covering the building more lonely.
Visitors can only walk around to admire the beauty left on the outside of the building, going inside the Palace is strictly prohibited to ensure safety.
