Old Dispensary

Originally built by Indian merchant Tharia Topan to be a hospital, the building eventually functioned as a dispensary during the 20th century. Today, it is one of the most prominent landmarks on the waterfront, housing a museum and an Ethiopian restaurant — the Abyssinian's Steakhouse. Feel free to explore the interior with a covered courtyard and ornately carved bridges connecting the floors.
