The place is a happy habitat for animals like spotted deer, nilgai, sambhar, crocodiles, rabbits, tortoises and sloth bear. Pleasant chirping of birds helps to add to the beauty of the delightful surroundings. Feathered friends like peacock, pheasants, lovebirds, pigeons, ring doves and ducks welcome guests who come to marvel at their beauty.
