A local boy showing a bucket with some fish which he along with his brother (behind) were able to catch using fishhooks at Ghadiharwa Pokhari of Birgunj. As temperature scores up to 40 degree and above, these local boys try to beat the heat by fishing in pond the whole day.

This pond is popularly known as Ghadiarba Pokhari Udyan, with a walkway leading to a temple of Suryadev (Sun God) in the middle. It is one of the main tourist’s attraction of Birgunj and has beautiful musical fountain, boat-ride, green belt, walkway etc. Some local people also call this pond a love garden.
