Chitralekha Udyan, Assam, India
Chitralekha Udyan has a U-shaped pond (paddle-boat hire per person ₹20) wrapped around pretty manicured lawns, dotted with fine ancient sculptures. From April to September, the park also contains bumper cars and water slides!
A block east, then south, stands Ganeshgarh Temple, which backs onto a ghat overlooking the surging river, a good place for Brahmaputra sunsets.
