Good for a walk but nothing else to offer

Not much to do here except take a walk. They should add more attractions for people like boating and maybe a restaurant or shrine in the middle of the lake.

With the temperatures in the city dropping, this is an ideal place for a clam walk in the evening by the Lake.

The Renaissance Hotel has a Lake cafe overlooking this clean lake. Swimming is prohibited, as is boating. It is known to have crocodiles in it which... More

Serene place with great connectivity. This is close to one of the premium institute of India, the IIT (indian institute of technology), so a lot of students keep coming here. On the other side of the highway attached to this lake is Hiranandani, Galeria, which is famous for food outlets. With all the facilities together, this is the perfect place... More
