    Recently we visited this place since just like any weekend there was no where else to go. It is a nice place for kids but not suitable for summer weather.  more »

    Locals call it mini tank bund but not a true replica of tank bund. Most of the visitors comes from dilsukhnagar and saroor nagar areas. This attraction is being developed and maintained by HMDA.  more »
