I wouldn't say there's anything special about this site. It's near jonker so definitely go and take a pic but don't expect much.

A lot of stalls were located around the fountain with a stall selling watermelon juice with the juice being contained in the fruit itself. I recommend visiting the square if you would like to buy apparel too. With most stalls selling pokemon clothes and plush toys.
