Lovely place. Try to visit on morning, which is the best time to explore the place. So much crowd. But still you can find a place to sit and take a breath peacefully!

No description could tell you how weird, special, funny and absolutely illogical this place is. You have to go and get an idea for yourself. We did it with a private guide who was knowledgeable and funny but gave us the time to explore and...More
