"Nice garden but needs good Maintenance"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Jun 27, 2017
Legacy of Thanjavur, one of the main visiting spot located just behind big temple.
Even though many facilities like water park etc are included, needs good maintenance as most of the amenities or spots are not accessible.
Boat ride also good but there are limitation in minimum number of persons.

"Beautiful garden near the old bus stand"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Aug 6, 2014
This is a beautiful garden near the old bus stand and close to a big temple. There are many attractions nearby. There is a horse ride for children. The vast garden area with illuminations in the evening is good. Large number of visitors spend evening time here.
