"I visited mid of January. Recent rains had filled the lake with abundant water. Lot of winged visitors this year. You won't see too many exotic bird species. Painted stork and grey pelican were on large numbers. Good place to take your kids too, safe for family. A zoom lens is a must if you want to shoot."

"It's a nice place to visit for in the November to February months you can find a large number of variety of birds. It has some nice photography places and good sceneries, many people come here to take some professional photos. Even though the place inside a village most people do come here for a small holiday visit with their families and friends."
