Excellent place to just laze around and not do anything in particular. Options to shop, eat, walk and sit at one place. Very popular.

We had a good time walking and shopping at this location. We also ate some street food. We had veg momos which were delicious. I bought a resin made green Tara and a bronze dragon.
