This historic water tank is believed to have originated back in 1120 AD. This place also has a religious background as it said that it was here that Ram’s brother Lakshman shot an arrow into the ground for the water to flow in from the Ganges. It is maintained very well and the water here is sweet despite being so close to the sea.

 

2. Sasoon Docks

Built in 1875, this is the largest fish market in the city. Huge quantities of fish are brought here and sold by the Koli fishing community. This is also the oldest dock in the city and a sight one must see.
