"Clean environment and it educates children"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Jun 6, 2015
You can not easily locate this place. It is right opposite to the DIARY, located inside a small street. Amazingly a clean environment, have enough things for small children to educate themselves. For adults, this is not going to be an appealing experience. A quiet place.
