  • Pretty good place. nice environment with lots of green :) good for a afternoon walk or hanging out with friends. if you are visiting in the afternoon you might struggle to get a bench to sit on as it gets crowded a bit. over all nice place. lakes are beautiful. not sure of boating is there or not. small fast food vendors are there for little afternoon snacks. transportation/communication is also good.
  • The lake is beautiful, and so is the area surrounding it. Perfect for taking morning and evening walks, or jogging and running. More or less a secluded place. Good for couples. But, couples need to be aware because prying eyes are everywhere. A major problem is that every now and then locals come and demand money from you for various useless reasons. And if you refuse, they threaten you. Their targets usually are couples trying to enjoy their time. So, be aware of that. Apart from this, a nice place to spend some time close to nature. Would recommend for bird watching or butterfly watching. Lots of birds to be found in and around the lake.
  • Rabindra Sarovar is a nice lake surrounded by apartment buildings. It is a welcome break from busy streets. There are several benches in the park around the lake, some vendors selling water and snacks. It is mostly clean and there are walking paths. The view in the morning is quite pretty especially in winter months when you see rowers practicing in the foggy lake at sunrise.  This is not a place for tourists to get in the water as there are no beaches, changing rooms or restrooms.
  • A beautiful place for a quality time with your loved ones. You can find many love birds here sitting next to the lake.
  • This is a very amazing place to hangout with your friends and family because of its scenic beauty and views. This place is best for doing photography and enjoying nice time. This place is usually filled with couples.
