Siva Ganga Park is a recreational park which is located next to the famous Brahadeeswarar Temple in Tanjore. It was inaugurated in 1871-72 CE. It is one of the oldest parks that still exists in Thanjavur. The Siva Ganga Tank that is located inside the park was constructed none other than the great King Raja Raja Chola. 

The Park has many attractions like motor boating in the tank, toy train, children park, etc. It is an important place for Tanjore citizens for evening gathering.

Happy travelling.
