Rabindra Sarovar, Kolkata (Calcutta)

4.3
#3 of 41 in Nature in West Bengal
Known as the lungs of Kolkata, Rabindra Sarovar serves as a quiet getaway with landscaped mounds and ornamental shrubs. Stroll the pebbled walkways, jog, cycle, picnic on a green lawn, or simply rest under the shade of old trees listening to birds chirping. The highlights include an open-air theater, a Buddhist temple, an island with a mosque and a suspension bridge, and a safari garden. The lake and its surroundings were created in 1958 in an area that used to be covered in a marshy jungle.
