Good hangout place

This is again another heritage park for culture, art, music lovers. I was amazed to see some of the best madhubani paintings over here. It is best for shoppers to buy garments, paintings, antiques and souvenirs. Just be cautious because everything over here is insanely priced. Over all a good hangout place to enjoy cultural programs and food.
