この辺りは沢山の遺跡がある。遺跡が普通に公園にあってすごいなー、とおもう。週末なので人が沢山いた。若者がダンスしていた。 more »This area has plenty of ruins. Remains in the normal Park, great!, and I think. There were many people since the weekend. Young people were dancing.
A nice park to enjoy a walk or jog. Recently that have cleaned it up so it's become better. It great to see people still playing गुल्ली डंडा here 🤗 👍 👍
It is an unique structure, with eleven openings, two at each end being of a subsidiary nature, and the remaining once giving its present name (meaning 'seven bridges', or 'bridge with seven openings'). The sides of the openings are provided with groves for sliding the shutters. At each end is a tower, with an octagonal chamber within, once utilized for a school, from which the monument derives its alternate name of madrasa.
