It is a beautiful place with many gardens.
Krishna garden and Lava Kusha gardens are situated on left side of dam. Remaining gardens are situated on right side of dam. The distance between left side gardens and right side gardens is 10 kilometers.
Krishna garden and Lava Kusha gardens are beautiful with very nice statues and landscapes. We can see nice view of Dam backwater from these 2 gardens.
Rock garden is beautiful and very big one with different kinds of birds, animals, landscapes, lakes etc. Kids really love this place but need to walk more. 10 rupees entrance charge. Boating facility also available in a pond at entrance of rock garden. Snacks, water and drinks are available for sale in two small shops inside garden.
We missed Mughal garden, Italian garden and Rose garden due to lack of time.
Half day (4 to 5 hours) is enough to see all gardens. One full day is required to see all gardens leisurely including light and musical show.
At entrance of Dam road some good hotels and restaurants are available for food and staying.
