Sursagar Lake, Vadodara

3.2
#2 of 9 in Parks in Vadodara
Admire the impressive statue of Shiva standing in the middle of the water at Sursagar Lake. The 18th-century man-made lake remains full year-round, and underground gates provide drainage to prevent flooding. Take some time to explore the surrounding market, where you can try some of the delicious foods on sale. Consider an evening stroll around the water, when the setting sun casts the 36.5 m (120 ft) statue in silhouette, which is then illuminated at nightfall.

  • Nothing much to write home about. A big Shiva statue in the middle of a not so clean lake. Hmm.. just a quick photo op & head to greener pastures. I did notice some barricades, so I hope they're renov...  more »
  • Totally ignored lake with trash floating all over. It could well be converted into a tourist attraction by cleaning and providing boat rides etc.  more »
  • It's a big pond with a humongous statue of Lord Shiva in the between. Recently water cleaning have started which is definitely making the water less green and odour-free. Located in the busiest part o...  more »

  • While I won't say it is a must visit tourist spot, it is still a great place to visit if you love looking at the sunset. You can click some great pictures from here and just spend some time roaming around the lake. The statue of Shiva in the middle of the lake adds a certain charm to this place and makes you want to watch the sunset here again and again. In all, it is a great place to watch the sunset and walk around a little.
  • Please do not visit this place if you're on Trip. This is big NOO......i have been there and just spend 2 mins there. Try to find something which motivate me to stop myself there for some time but water is sinking and garbage is spreads every where. There is mangal market for shopping but not for us...for below average. So no for that also. Not to compare any one just to Guide visitors to save time to cut this place from your visiting places list and utilities your precious time some where else. There autos start their rates from 50 rs for 5 min ride or more. But people are very cool and helping and sweet some where from bottom of my heart I love this city and want to come here again and again. I have an question that I want to do shoppers please some one help me please.....
  • It was good to be here in night, quite roads and view was awesome. Nothing much of attraction around here. Lake is also not cleaned.
  • Sur Sagar lake also known as the Chand Talao is a lake situated in middle of the city of Vadodara in the State of Gujarat in India. The lake was rebuilt with stone masonry in the 18th Century. The water in this lake remains in it for the whole year. A concrete wall surrounds the lake on which the people use to sit. A 120 ft tall statue of lord Shiva built by Vadodara mahanagar Seva Sadan stands in the middle of the lake. There are many underwater gates in the lake which empty the lake if it overflows.
  • Scenery is beautiful, but foul smell may be distastefully irritating. A kind advice to observe the beauty from distance. Municipal Corporation need take a note of it and make place clean and touristy.
