Right in the middle of the city is this gorgeous Japanese style garden/park where you can see a huge number of tourists and locals converge. There’s a zoo here as well, where you can get to see various animals such as porcupine, jackal, leopard and Himalayan Black Bear. Inside the park, there is rich flora and fauna and there are charming ponds as well. If you like, you can even go boating on the lake and enjoy the marvellous scenic sights around you. The park is open only from morning 8 am to 5 pm and is closed on Mondays. Since it is located within the city, it can be reached easily by cab.
