It used to be a lake some times ago but now It has been vanished and the entire lake is gone. The water simply ran out some years ago. You can not enjoy if you visit this place.

It might have had some water at some point of time and may be during the rainy season. But now it is bone dry with kids playing on the bed and shrubs have grown enough to indicate that there has been no water for a very long time. There is a horse and camel to ride on the bank. Everything... More

It used to be a major tourist attraction few years back but now it has almost dried up. But still a nice place if you are looking for peace from the mad rush of the city

This is a bit like Surajkund which is nearby. Its a lake without water. There are camel and horse rides and a small boating lake. It must have been lovely when it was full of water but now its just open ground. Don't bother unless you are very nearby.

It used to be a lake here but now due to excessive mining around the area dried the lake. However the surroundings of the lake area is good.
