I was staying at the Sandtan hotel I decided to take a stroll while I had some time. The statues and artifacts were very beautiful with great meaning. I wasn't there long I was just passing through.

I has a good experience visiting the place and Mall. It was clean, well secured with police around the establishment. The atmosphere was calm and pleasant. There was some men idling at the side but I still get secure because of the security guards nearby. There’s a lot of stores and great restaurants within the square.
Nice small piazza with restaurants and café around. A couple of Nelson Mandela statues; giant with everyone taking pictures with and one tiny like 1 m tall. The square has good number of restaurants like Butcher's HARD ROCK Raj (Indian) It is connected to 2 malls (biggest Sandton)
