Got here after walking through a nice touristy area full of shops. The building is very big and overlooks the gardens which are scattered with various monuments and statues. Only downside was the few homeless guys sat around the park. Lots of street traders here too selling art and crafts and tat which was a bonus.

There are not many remaining buildings of the years the state was proud of its coffee richness. The old university building is one of these.
