  • I like the way it is served as an art precinct, where local talents can hold exhibitions, selling their goods etc. It's such a unique and beautiful old building in an octagonal shape. It is interesting to note that outside and nearby of the building is a famous hangout bar areas for LGBT communities. Making this while area even more colorful and eclectic.
