The name Durgam Cheruvu stands for ‘Secret Lake’. Durgam Cheruvu is a lake surrounded by granite rocks in the form of hills and mammoth rocks, which covers about 63 acres of land. This rock formation, which is about 2500 million years old, is a popular picnic spot as it has been converted in to a Sculpture Park with artificial waterfalls and a floating fountain. The rock formation on the eastern side of the lake has been transformed in to a green belt with about 2 km pathway, and seating arrangements.

1. Title should summarise your review
2. Elaborate. Instead of 'Good sightseeing place', write, 'Beautiful temple with intricate architecture' or 'Kid-friendly park but limited rides'
I used to visit this place very often during my college days. But as the city expanded, not many people visit right now. But this is still a place recommended.
