Average food. Good for drinking. Away from the city crowd. Avoid going during night as it is little isolated.

Very easily approachable weekend picnic spot. The yearly mela in February is an amazing event to visit.

Place is awesome, location for picnic gathering(family or friends), heritage site(Surajkund) adjancent which is also turned into ground as no water. Tourist hotel complex is best in the city. Overall is good to visit and it would be great if you enjoy the Surajkund Craft Mela as well.

In this season the lake is almost dried up and the place around the lake is quite littered up. Without the annual mela, the place is not worth visiting
