Its a small garden to chill with friends and family. Not much to see. You can keep it in your list the last place to visit before leaving the city.

The Park Monument (Aayi Mandapam) is a beautiful French architecture surrounded by green lawn. The place is well maintained. Nothing much to do here. A couple of minutes to check out the place are good enough.

Beautiful example of French building and grandeur. Definitely worth the visit. Benches around the monument are also very tastefully made of granite. Rambu nalla!

Green space in the heart of the city. Ideal for evening walk. It is understood that the mandapam has a history.
