Well maintained medium sized bird sanctuary. Not crowded on a Monday afternoon. We spent 3 hours there. Shady paths, great view points, including a small tower. Plenty of painted storks, pelicans and many others easily seen. Entry 5 rupees, car park 30 rupees

Early Morning is better or late afternoon, as any of the birds leave to feed etc as the day goes on. We were there at 7.30am. By 10am the birds were starting to fly off.
