Its a small lake, present in middle of old town of Bhuvaneshwar. Musical fountain and light event happens every evening at 6 Pm and 7 Pm. You can relax your tiring day along with some famous snacks from the shop right next to this lake.
The updated version of the lake, which includes a light show in the evening mostly around 6:05pm, something worth watching.It will leave you spellbound.
It is a goodplace to hangout in the evening.It has Lord Lingaraj temple in the backdrop. The bad thing about this place is that the pond is very dirty and not cleaned at regular intervals. My suggestion is that heavy fine be imposed on the persons who make the pond and its surrounding dirty.
Awesome pond having light show in the evening
