This place has really mesmerizing scenery to capture pictures for memories. Moreover, the reflecting pool is situated in the south-east corner of the square. Which lits up when it’s lightened up at night time. People come here for ice skating during the winter months, when the pool freezes.



Planning an outing with your buddies would be a great idea, if you haven’t been there before in the early days. Lights make this place more serene and calm, when there are few  people in the early mornings.Otherwise, as it is a very popular area, you can’t enjoy, if the place is too crowded.
