Classic photos on display at Das Studios are a treat to eyes. Sitting on a bench in the central arena takes you away from the hustles of modern day madness & bring a... More

Nice place to sit and unwind after a busy day. No vehicles are allowed at this place. Lots of things to shop around, great temple to visit if you are interested or just sit and soak in the ever festive mood

The selection on Tibet and Nepal... More

Its basically the heart of the town. From here on you can go ahead to all the various sight seeings all around. You have the car stand here as well from where you could hire a vehicle for your sight seeings or to go back to njp station as well.

I feel this place is overrated. Not clean. Prefer early morning time for a walk. Items in the market are too costly not up to the standard. The podium over there was dirty. locals and tourists to be blammed for not keeping clean
