Located on a 4 lane roundabout, with only 1 crossing point. Nicely tended green areas but you can't walk on them. When we visited the fountain had no water inside so nothing to see there. The whole place is also unshaded except in the main...More

This is a nice landmark with good views of the surrounding government buildings and city. The upper floors offer markets with both reasonable and modern souvenirs.
