One cannot miss out the Padum Pukhuri while at Tezpur. Centrally located it is a large lake with an island in the middle of it. The island is accessible only through a small iron bridge. The Padum Pukhuri is a common attraction for children. On a hot summer evening, strolling around the lake and standing on the island offers a pleasant experience.
The main attractions of Padum Pukhuri are boating and the toy train ride for the children. There is also a musical fountain on the island that is played every evening. The ambience created by the music all around and the cool winds is awesome. Padum Pukhuri literally means the Lotus Lake, as Padum in Assamese means a 'Lotus' and 'Pukhuri' means a lake.
Reaching Padum Pukhuri is not difficult. It is very close to the state transport bus station. Tourists cannot miss out on the lake while entering the city.
