Now that we had lost on a lot of time, we just decided to skip the lunch and see as many places as we could till evening. Honestly speaking, we were so frustrated by then that we simply hopped from one place to another. But in the process, we did manage to cover almost all the major attractions across the complex. I do not wish to describe each and every place here. I would rather let the pictures do the talking.
