We entered this place with great hope to be able to see the actual rock edicts, however luck did not favour us. We assumed the edicts were behind a large slope of land and walked up there to find a well maintained garden. Later did we realise that the rock edicts are kept away in some small corner in a glass house after we came back from a walk around that garden. By that time we were already exhausted.

You will delight to see rock edicts more then two thousand years old for the establishment of world peace .
