The tall standing statue of God Shiva is the main attraction of this busy market area where the old fort is also located. The lake stinks as it has become the place for all garbages. Why the local administration or the citizens have no care for making this once good place as a lovable spot by cleaning and providing the... More

Sursagar lake is located in midst of the more populous part of Vadodara. Parking could be an issue. Has a beautiful and huge Shiva statue in midst and many temples around it. Famous Mangal Bazaar and Nyay Mandir are in vicinity. Special Mahashivratri Aarti is not to miss event.

It is a lake in the heart of the city and has a giant Shiv statue in its midst. One can go for a walk around the entire lake. As with most places in India, with increasing population, the area is not clean, some people throw garbage in the lake and the roads around are full of traffic. It has... More

A must visit, surrounded by temples and monestaries. Sometimes they organise music concerts along the lake, we were lucky to attend one of them. A beautiful Shiva statue in the middle adds to the glory.

Clean lake with huge idol of shiva in the center, which was visible even from the aeroplane as you arrive/ leave Vadodara. The lake is filled with water all through the year. Around this lake are the buzzing areas of sayaji baug, dandia bazaar and mangal bazaar... the street hawkers and the roadside shops are endless and you can get... More

The historic place speaks very high of the history of the town of Baroda, a beautiful lake built by then Maharaja.
