He noticed strict security measures in the court, because it had been informed to Mongke, possibly a rumour that was going about that forty Ismaili fidais had entered the city to kill him.
It is most likelihood that Mongke was yet unaware of his arrival.

 Hulagu Khan Summary
Mongke Khan had ordered Hulagu to treat kindly those who submitted, and utterly destroy those who did not.
The smaller states in the region hastened to reassure Hulagu of their loyalty, and the Mongols turned to Syria in 1259, conquering the Ayyubids and sending advance patrols as far ahead as Gaza.
Indeed, although the succession was finally settled by imprisonment of one of his brothers, and another elevated to Great Khan, (Kublai Khan), the truth is that after 1258 there was no unified Mongol Empire, but four separate kingdoms, including the Il-Khanate of Persia established by Hulagu.

Yeah, I have also heard that Mongke Temur was the founder of Jianzhou Nuzhen, and some people have considered him as the earliest leader of the Qing Dynasty Emperors.
Apparently, Mongke Temur was originally the name of a Mongolian Khan; however, it became a relative term used to describe leaders of Jian Zhou left/right guards as time went by.
The name “Mongke Temur” in the Manchu’s content probably had little to do with the Mongolian Khan.

 Dharma Fellowship: Kagyu Tradition
The Emperor is said to have demanded from the Christian missionaries, who had been sent to him by the Pope, the performance of a miracle as proof of the superiority of the Christian religion.
The Karmapa, in the presence of the missionaries themselves, then caused the Emperor's wine cup to rise supernaturally to his hand, whereat Mongke adopted Buddhism, while the discomfited missionaries declared the levitation to be the work of the devil, into whose hands they now believed the Emperor to have fallen.
When Mongke Khan died in 1260 and Kublai took power against his younger brother Ariboga, the Karmapa's preference for the contemplative life over that of the court (Kublai had ordered Karma Pakshi to stay at his side, and the latter had refused) earned him disfavor and eventual persecution.
