  • Coolest place to hangout in between the greenery. The air out there is very refreshing apart from the polluted city air. Best place to play sports and do any kind of recreation keeping in mind not to destroy the green ambience.
  • This is a really nice place to visit alone as well as with group. A delight for photographers with beautiful monument and scenes. With ground all covered with green grass gives visitors a relaxing feeling to sit and spend some quality time.
  • Good place for photography. Maidan is exactly in the center of the Esplanade area. So you can overlook various famous buildings from here. One of the good views from here is overlooking the Victoria Memorial while having a nice meal sitting on the huge field of Maidan.
  • Excellent place to spend the evening with your loved ones and friends. Place has a soothing effect and gives you a sense of peace and relaxation. Lemon tee with snacks and horse riding provides an added benefit. Try once.
  • Good Place. Street foods were awesome. There are some nice looking sculptures around. The roads were nice to watch also. Most importantly, the Victoria Memorial is there.
