There is nothing so great about this lake. There are few myths. No proper facilities provided for the tourists. Road to this lake is in a bad condition.

This lake is a lovely expense of water with a couple of hillocks around where one can climb up for the mesmerizing view and to enjoy a lovely cool breeze.This place is a pleasant and relaxing place and is away from the traffic of the city.

Its gives a beautiful scenic view, but except that it has nothing else. There is a small temple where people come to worship and then put flowers and other items in lake.
