  • Nice place but we miss view as we reached at 5:30 pm. Once must check time before go. Place for kids for playing. 🐦 Bird lovers with good camera must visit.
  • We visited in the month of December. Did not find too many birds may be because we had been in the afternoon around 4 o clock. Pros: The place is well maintained with beautiful garden which is very clean. Can be visited for a one day picnic.
