  • 很有味道,爬满青苔的石阶,造型古朴的砖塔,咕噜咕噜冒水的山泉,一汪清水的大水池,还有曲颈向天歌的鹅群,与水中的游鱼相伴,令人会意而笑。 最好打车去。 
  • Complicated access site because it does not appear on all maps but worth seeing and enjoy, despite not being careful and garbage be immense.

  • Don't tell any one. Such a jewel of village inside the big town with 15 or more temples around. The Mumbai Explorers brought us here, what a place! They are restoring the steps now, will be even more beautiful soon.
  • Can take a bath in the naturally flowing fresh water stream. Also, mundan can be done here.
  • Nothing much special. Just a artificial lake and some part were under construction But if you enjoy the silence in a city, this is the best place
  • A must visit place during evening time, you will enjoy the evening rays heading over the bay towards the lake from west .. This is sacred place, there are visible 21 temples around this place with Gods: Ganpati, Shiv, Krishna, Lakshmi, Hanuman etc.. Simple story: Lord Rama was passing by this place. His wife Rani Sita was thirsty, they couldnt drink water from adjacent story. Lord shot an arrow to bring burst of fresh water. Rani Sita drank from this source. That's the story Ban - Arrow and Ganga - Freshwater, The water which oringated due to Arrow of Lord Rama. This is the mythology story I have heard since my birth. The source of this tank is underground fresh water which my life time has never stopped . Thats the beauty of this tank. Drink the water from small jharna at the north east corner of the tank. You would definitely quench your thirst with its naturally cooled water fr mother nature. A place to be in any season.
  • If you are silence loving person then please go and enjoy your day...
