Sursagar Lake, formerly known as Chandan Talao, lies in the middle of the city of Vadodara. Rebuilt with stone banks and masonry in the 18th century, this lake remains full of water throughout the year. A concrete wall rings the lake that is often used by people to sit and enjoy the evenings. Vadodara Municipal Corporation has recently constructed a 120 ft tall statue of Lord Shiva in standing posture which was installed in 2002, in the middle of this lake.Several underground gates have been constructed to empty the lake in case it shows signs of overflowing. Water from these gates gushes to river Vishwamitri, which flows through the city of Vadodara. The lake is now being used for boating purposes, and looks extremely beautiful particularly on moonlit nights.
