"Many varieties of fishes. But the place is little messed up. Could have been cleaned properly. Being a tourist place it is good. One of the best thing is that to reach the aquarium one has to use boating which is around 220/- rupees for 4 people. And the ducks used to swim with you and sometimes race with you. They were really cute. You can also feed the ducks and click lots of pics. I was told by the boat captain that before there was a aquarium that place used to be a restaurant. And the place used to run jam packed because the food was extremely delicious. But afterwards it was shut down because it started polluting the lake which fills itself with water from the groundwater. And the fishes used to die because of it. So they closed it and now there is an aquarium. The place has lots of small restaurants with amazing food. There are many maggi points, momos and tea stall. Which I tried was simply mouth watering. Must try it once if you go to the place. "
