Not worth going to this place. This is not a place to be visited. The lake was dry with very scanty water. Nothing to experience. This place can be dropped.

Guyz, lake is under renovation. So currently no benefit to visit to that area. Would suggest you to visit sun set point which is nearby. Also would suggest you to visit in the evening at around 5 pm to see the best view.
