Very nice campus with many lakes and beautiful gardens and nice buildings around. Luckily security at the entrance wouldn’t allow everyone to get it, just few people, otherwise wouldn’t have been so nice with all people around. Worth a visit!

Opening hours are 1pm to 3pm but only very limited numbers. Opens again in late afternoon at 5pm but expect big crowds which start to gather about 3pm to wait for the opening time of 5pm.
