Quick getaway from delhi, close to gurugram, its a quite place for the outing. There were outdoor activities available like camel riding, boating etc. There is Haryana Tourism resort with a restaurant, we ordered chinese which tasted alright. Good picnic spot to spend the day.

Little more than a dirty pond, the place is hardly worth a visit. Its very polluted and has almost no water to speak of.

There is no restriction on fishing. But can be done from July to Nov/Dec months only as there is enough water level.
