BHARADWAJ PARK ALLAHABAD
It was a winter afternoon and the place was sun kissed. It has that element of cheer to it.Lush green grass covered the landscape.The green cover enveloped the area.Water was gushing out from the source and flowed through stepped structure and the fountainhead looked astonishingly amazing.The entrance leads to stepped contour over which you can see the play of lights.The stepped area further leads to a large open space where we can see walkaways in between.The passageways are the concrete structure tiled in a regular arrangement.The whole area is covered by the several feet high walled enclosure over which artists have painted their imagination.As you walk along the passageway we can see the rounded crossing.On one of the sides of the crossing lie a several feet high red carved out stone structure that assumes as a focal point in the vicinity.
