Considered to be one of the highest if not the highest fountain in the world, very relacing to watch even fom the air , to make sure you don't miss its view from the air plane you should select a window seat in the left side of the aircraft.

Certainly not a place for tourists, the heat is basically unbearable. Traffic is hectic and definitely not for everyone.

Hangout spot surrounded with many places around from a walking distance such as hotels and restaurants and cafe's as you can enjoy the beautiful view at night and it's near from the downtown.
