At night, the city presents a magical view. Overlooking from the top of a mountain, the city seems a flood of lights, which captivates the viewers. Looking a little away from the city Centre, the thinly scattered lights on mountains appear like little stars and you feel for a while as if the sky has been turned upside down. The cultural life of the city is as varied as its landscape. If you walk through the city, this contrast becomes too obvious to escape notice.
