The sunrise & sunset experience has a beauty of its own, especially at the spot where two lakes are simultaneously fringed by hills.

1. Twin lakes of Tikkar Taal: Bhim Taal and Draupdi Taal
A hill divides the two twin lakes, the larger one is called Bhim Taal or just Tikkar Taal which is 550 meter wide and 460 meter long, and the smaller one is called Draupdi Taal or Chota Tikkar Taal (meaning the little tikkar lake) is 365 meter wide and long. Legend says that there is a hidden channel linking both the lakes, as the water level of two lakes remains roughly the same. Both the lakes are looked upon by locals as sacred.
2. Morni Hill Fort & Museum
This is a very old fort situated in Morni Hills, and so more or less its in ruins. Yet, this is a popular trekking location among youth for hanging out with friends. Lots of greenery is spread across Morni fort, and the faint scene of the trees and flowers add peacefulness to the ambiance. A colourful temple dedicated to Lord Shiva is adjacent to the fort and stands out amidst the gloomy surroundings presented by the fort. Even the local authorities have restored the place for tourists. Last year, a museum was also opened inside the Fort Area.
3. Thakurdwara Temple
Dedicated to Lord Krishna, this beautiful temple is built on the site of a 10th Century ancient temple. Located at the banks of Tikkar Taal, this temple is credited with excavations in 1970 leading to the discovery of Hindu sculptures dating back to Pratihara era (7th to 11th century CE), some of which are housed at Government Museum and Art Gallery, Chandigarh and some remain in-situ at the Thakurdwara temple at Morni Hills.
