Loved it ! It’s like traveling back to the past with all those narrows streets and stones houses. It’s super quiet hence the name “the Silent city”. Though I got the chance to assist to a wedding some places were still super quiet. If you like peaceful places with history you should definitely visit there !
This is the entrance to the silent city. Its a place you must visit, its like going back in time, by over 1000 years.
