There is also a picturesque courtside outside the abbey with lush green gardens and a fountain where one can take a relaxed walk. There are a number of religious artifacts, manuscripts, and artworks of artistic and historical significance depicting the lives of the monks who were once the inhabitants of the place at the abbey's mausoleum.
