A green island in the concrete metropolis. Guarded by police. A calm, tranquil land. BEAUTIFUL GARDENS. neo-romantic or old English type houses mixed with ultra modern fancy rusty steel plated bdgs. Wish I were a student here... Huge sports grounds.

Visited for business meeting not actually having an idea of the location or the place. I was expecting a typical uni building but no...Beautiful building instead, with British architecture and a bit of a lebanese tradition with beautifully shaped arches. Clean and quiet, represents a...More
