Best time to go there is in Winter, early morning or in late evening. One can see hundreds of birds like pelicans, flamingos, kingfisher, horon etc. There is small museums developed by government before the starting of Sanctuary, where u can see the statue and photos of birds and their egg that one will probaly see it in Sanctuary.
