Overall Guide : A neat and clean city with low pollution best for settlement after retirement from service or business. The banks of lakes are well maintained with fountains flowing all the times besides greenery every where create very good view to pass... more time. Moreover housing is no problem in any way as these are much cheaper than other big cities like Houston or Baton Rouge. As we remained there for five weeks only during June-July, 2010, our stay was a memorable moment.
