Highlights: A large number of water monitors, butterflies, insects and other birds tend to catch your attention as you walk through the muddy paths of the sanctuary.

Timings: The sanctuary is open all through the day; however early mornings and evenings are best to visit migratory birds.
Best Season to Visit: You must visit this place during the months between December and January, as this is the peak season for migratory birds to seek protection here.
