  • Very well maintained park. Visit in the morning or evening to enjoy serenity with cool breeze lightening up your mood. P.S: Extremely Rude workers.
  • There isn't anything new to see. They show a movie about the life of the Buddha and then there are two mahabodhi trees. There is also a stupa but nothing charming as such. There is a library too. Costs 20 bucks for the park and extra 50 for stupa and there are charges for library. Not worth the cost to me. Might make sense for religious beings but definitely not for tourists who like to see something interesting.
  • Very clean and peaceful place. Must visit place. As a traveller you must not skip this.
