Sursagar Lake, Vadodara

2.5
#1 of 7 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.

Where to stay in Vadodara

Hotels dominate the accommodation options in Vadodara, while apartment shares and room rentals provide alternative options. Affordable hotels and lodgings lie scattered around town; check about the registration procedure prior to arrival. A number of budget hostels cluster near the railway station, though, again, you'll need to check in advance whether they take non-Indian customers due to complicated police registration procedures.
