Sursagar Lake, Vadodara

3.2
#2 of 8 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.

  • In heart of the city, this small lake and LORD SHIVA sculpture is eye catching. Avoid it during day as surrounding area is heavily crowded. At night and late evening, place for street food.  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.
  • 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.
  • Sursagar Lake, formerly known as Chandan Talao, lies in the middle of the city of Vadodara. Rebuilt with stone banks and masonry in the 18th century, this lake remains full of water throughout the year. A concrete wall rings the lake that is often used by people to sit and enjoy the evenings. Vadodara Municipal Corporation has recently constructed a 120 ft tall statue of Lord Shiva in standing posture, in the middle of this lake. The lake is now being used for boating purposes, and looks extremely beautiful particularly on moonlit nights.
  • Good Palceđź‘Ś But Need to Maintain this Properly.. After Ganesh Visarjan Sevasadan Needs to Clean this lake.. 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. The water from the lake empties in the Vishvamitra River. The lake is used for boating. The statue of Lord Shiva is lit with lights on Mahashivratri. Via-Wikipedia

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.
