This historical place has been well known for young couples hiding in the bushes and doing some dirty deeds. Its a shame because it destroys the beauty of the place. I hope there will be changes and more security in this place soon.

The name is very interesting. The history of the place is amusing. One can't escape the interesting background of this place and have a smile. What ever may be the history, this is one of the most peaceful place to sit, enjoys sea breeze and...More
