  • I wanted to see the roof of Jorna ITIL and visited. There are other buildings in the city that use Jorana, but the blue roofs were unusual and I was fascinated by them. It was a great thing in the building, but this time I gave up because it was not convenient. But it was worth going just to look at the look.
