    Beautiful lit at night

    We came here in the evening after visiting the muslim quarter for food as it was nearby. Lots of youths hanging around in the surrounding area. The drum tower looks beautiful at night.

    Impressive sight day and night

    This square off of a main street is surrounded by shops, restaurants and a park. The site is beautifully lit at night and is nice to observe during the day.
