Each stone represents a legend of ethnic groups about religion and beliefs, and their worship to the God and Ancestors.
    Enjoy with Local Weekly Fair
    Rather than a trading post, this is more of a cultural and communal activity. The market is held every Sunday. People come here to buy groceries, but mostly, this is the place for young people to meet up and have fun.
        It looks like a festival more than a market. Therefore, boys and girls prepare to go to the market the night before in order to arrive on time. They try to look their best by putting on their most beautiful clothes.
