We passed by this public park while walking in the old city. Nice place to rest and relax and maybe pose for some pictures with lovely green trees around. We also saw many bats flying there during morning

After many years of neglect and degradation the garden is back. Major works and money were spent and it is a nice spot to find peace and quiet. Watch out for pretty thieves.
