The Muktangan is spread in nearly half of an acre of land, neatly completely turfed as a soft green carpet, colonnade in several expansive galleries. It has flower beds an all sides and having small bridges over the watery tunnels, is very nice beauty spot. It is a place, where people forget their worries, sorrows, sufferings and the mundane humdrum living. The low realigned bridges bridge the gulf between the ancient and modern. The foreigners proclaim the Muktangan as the first of its kind in the East.
