  • Cool religious place with historical significance. The garden is well maintained with play area for children. Museum behind the temple has very beautiful and rare artistic Ganesh idols. Only lacuna is the couples sitting on the foot over-bridge doing things which passerby feel awkward. Municipal Corporation should not allow the couples to sit there.
  • Famous garden. Nice to have spend the time whenever you are free. There is one Ganesh statue museum which is very beautiful. You can see various types of fishes in pond around the temple. Drawback is that there is only one washroom which is at the end of garden. And its not easily accessible.
