  • Beautiful garden, calm place, less crowded. 🥀 It was a nice visit, although looks haunted at some place inside, but when you are with someone you have to be calm. Enjoyed the beautiful sunset. It was really craving. They worship at many places inside, while many were praying. All round the place is good with a little of haunt in it. 👻
  • Ruins but huge, worth the visit, some interesting spots, including bats in dark places. Broken mosque on top but people still go there to worship. Pyramid climb would be unsafe for kids but fun to explore. Gardens were really nice.
