  • IT is close to Bazaar, it is very well maintained if we talk about green places, and it has a gallery of art.

  • It's a really nice place to take a walk and get some fresh air close to the city center so easily reachable, there a a few small museum-antique shops that you can find some nice souvenirs, keep in mind to argue the price though. There is a small book seller at the entrance, at different times of the year there will be nice celebrations like Newroz, New year's eve.
