It's an open air park, using a great new concept for displaying ancient history. Often it is very difficult to do that, because you have to follow certain rules not to destroy anything left on the ground.

With useing plants and lawnmowvers to show for example the walls or the streets within the fort, you can show the diemnsions and the position of certain buildings without damaging anything. They do it really well here, it's a great place for a short trip!
