  • A very nice place especially the school style there and what you see from each side and a big lake the aim of it is to provide the suitable atmosphere for the students to concentrate and receive the science and as usual if you dont like the places that are buildings and gardens and outside you will find many stores and good restaurants and in the arena Under the lake there are monkeys but take care to withdraw your mobile ^^

  • The photogenic ruins were more impressive than I imagined and i was impressed. Harmony with nature surrounding the ruins is also a good feeling. The park is just a few steps away from the place where you can shop and eat, so i think it's perfect for a holiday.

  • It's a well maintained Park in the heart of Delhi. A good spot for environmental enthusiasts. Small vendors will be there to sell Street foods like chaat etc. Lake is fine, water smells a bit, but that thing is tolerable. And the cold breeze will refresh you on Lake side. You can spot a lot of love birds though :p
  • It was really a nice place special for the one who always feel lonely... It's a good place for dating too😉 It's big And clean And it's need more upgradation.. Some part are still under construction Anyway it's a good place Just love it
