There really isn't much to say about this place. It's a decent structure but in terms of what it has to offer, there are a few pictures hanging on the wall and a large area with lots of seats... so that just about sums it up.

“Summit of Power”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

This is the Venue where, annually, Heads of State, captains of commerce and industry, top brain academics of all fields converge to discuss, debate and decide on matters that has wide reaching implications on the world we live in.

Apart from the picturesque photo-taking site, there isn't much really.

The elevated fountain spew jets of water upwards. The falling sprays then flows down steps that surrounds the fountain. The entire fountain is fringed with plants. On each side of the fountain flutters flags of participating countries on flagpoles. In pride of place is, of course, one's national flag... whichever country we belong to.

This is the only place on earth where the national flag of Israel is hoisted just next to the national flag of Indonesia (the largest muslim country in the world).

Behind the fountain is a raised metallic orb featuring the relief of the map of the world.

For our photo-shoot, step-platforms are provided - just in front the scene. Cool.

Although rather simple and man-made, the aura of power pervades the senses. It brings feel-good vibes knowing this is the centre of gravity of governments in the area. It brings a calming sense of satisfaction just being there.
