Passed through here on the way back to our hotel. Could not see any special reason to hang around. You may come through here on the metro if you are visiting nearby attractions but I cannot see another reason to visit.

We came here on the middle of the day, still the place was full with unpleasant people looking bad and yelling us. Some flower store was open, but dont try to smell with your nose.

Walking into this neighborhood is like entering a

ethnic specialty shops are independent theaters and
