All people come here just to take snap with this holy church .In night view become much beautiful.It is also having some shops around which offers you different kind of snacks which will keep you energetic during your travel to this area.

  • The Ridge, called The Mall is a great place to stroll about during either the day or night. Lots of shops about, sights to see, places to see and wonderful views. What is surprising is that the local governments have banned smoking and spitting in the centre - so as a result there are no cigarette fumes and the area is really clean and tidy - no litter either! If you are lucky you get to see local theatre players, dancers, singers or entertainers in the outdoor mini arena. A really lovely area.
