Here You can get inner peace. They believe that the lake will fulfil your dream. Lots of fish was there.
A beautiful place to visit. The lake is considered very sacred among the locals aNd fishing is prohibited in the lake. There are big fishes in the lake and it's a grand idea to feed them with biscuits from nearby shops. There is a small temple around the lake. It is said that you can see the foot prints of Tara maa in the lake from an higher altitude. I am sharing photos along with.
