  • It is better to stop shooting at the facility where the military is competent. It seems to be troublesome when found in the guard of the army. When I was walking around this moat, I was advised by the people on the road, the taxi driver, the shop owner and the customers.       Smart phone, tablet, it is better to just put out the camera is questionable. It is a normal moat as far as it looks, and there is a cannon, and a very impressive tree grows. Aside from the compartments that are not being guarded, there is a lot of security in the area to keep a lookout, so it is a restless place for sightseeing. It was a good place to enjoy a conversation with the locals who just advised me.

  • The site unfortunately does not allow visitors to be a military barracks. On the outside there's a lot of dirt and vultures in the large amounts of rubbish there is. However, it is worth going to the place to know and take pictures.
