  • I visited so I stayed close. I went to the "House of healing". You can make natural stone bracelet. You can choose from 1 tablet at an additional cost when you want to add to the slightly more expensive stone, stone fixed in base rates.

I think it's because facilities are scattered in the countryside village, Temple, stroll or aim the shop you are looking for.
