Sayaji Baug
 

Sayaji Baug Sprawls over 113 acres of land, Sayaji Baug also known as Kamati Baug is a well-known park located on the River Vishwamitri at a distance of 2kms from the city. Built in 1879 by Maharaja Sayajirao III, the garden houses a Zoo, Baroda Museum and Picture Gallery, the Museum of Health and Hygiene and the Sardar Patel Planetarium. The major attraction is the floral clock, situated at the center of the garden and is the first of its kind in Gujarat. The clock consists of an hour, minute and seconds hand that move on the 20 feet diameter dial and its machinery is fixed under the lawn, giving it a natural look. Sayaji Baug, decorated with sculptures placed on pedestals, is an ideal place to rest and relax with well maintained lawns and fountains. Around 98 species of trees can be seen here. Another attraction of the park is the toy train which was a gift from the royal Gaekwad family. The train that runs on a small track of 10 inch width covering a distance of 3.5 km offers a joyful trip to the children below 12 years of age. The train doesn’t operate on Thursdays.
