  • No more free car parking. No bills for parking when you park there. This place must be improved.
  • Place has high speed free WIFI connectivity and ample parking space.. but usually crowded if taxis are present.
  • I parked here for around one hour.They charged Rs.25/- only. There is an entry as well as exit separately on the same road.Entry is the first opening in the parking lot when you come westward from the Railway station. Its an open ground with some trees.
  • There are two Car parkings adjacent to each other.. The one nearest to Gate no. 10 charge Rs. 50/- per hour.. The slightly far one charge Rs. 25/- for first two hours... Better go for the second one
  • It's safe to park there, but I guess they don't work at early morning, like 3 am etc. Not much maintenance, just a ground marked up for parking.
