  • Ideal place for evening outings. We friends went around 6 PM. Breezy and happening place for pleasant evening. Good street food joints, chats, sandwiches, cold refreshments. Not proper maintenance. But can feel the fresh air. It is man made and still beautiful.
  • It was an amazing experience and the view was great! They have boating options and it’s must to have a complete experience! Only thing was the climate nowadays (March) is hot and we advise to go in the evening.
  • It is a place worth visiting if you visit Kolhapur. It is about a mile away from the Mahalakshmi Temple. Evening is the best time to roll around. This place provides boating and it is a very decent experience as the lake has a radius about half kilometre.
  • Its a very good handout place. Even a peaceful place . Children’s can also enjoy here a lot.
  • Nice hangout place with a park and a palace along its sides. Beautiful sunset view from there
