Not to miss this tricky fountain. It showcases the tech savvy attitude of the then King & the way it is executed it is excellent. We took a guided tour with a lady and she was amazing. It was fun to be with her

Though it is considered for kids would love the place, as adults we enjoyed ourselves a lot. Our guide was a humourous lady with smooth English. The atmosphere is joyful which the place was built for by Archbishop Marcus Sittikus.
