This could be a ideal day trip or picnic. It is situated at the bank of irrigation canal (river like) connecting Damodar river with Hooghly river. over this canal 58 lock gates are there; hence the name yields. A small deer park is there. One can also spot a few peacocks here. Don't miss a country boat ride!
