Sursagar Lake is in the center of the city of Vadodara. Initially, it was a small pond called ‘Chandan Talav,’ built by Shri Sureshwar Desai and therefore named Sursagar after him. In the middle of the lake is a 120-foot-tall statue of Lord Shiva sculpted by Vadodara Mahanagar Seva Sadan.

Sursagar Lake Vadodara History
In the 18th century, the lake was rebuilt with stone masonry. The Vadodara Municipal Corporation constructed a 120-foot-tall statue of Lord Shiva (Sarveshwar Mahadev) in a standing posture in the middle of this lake in 2002.
