Besides farming, you will also get to see a host of other traditional crafts such as blacksmithing, bird traps, musical instruments and a whole lot more. Also comprising a zen-like lotus lake, and an organic garden with more than 30 types of vegetables and fruits, it will delight the plant-lover in you, if not inspire the creation of one!
