Star Gazing : The location of Annapara is such that there is almost no ambient light around and it enjoys an unobstructed view of the sky. Therefore, star gazing when the sky is clear is absolutely an astronomer’s delight. The easiest to recognise is the North Star used by sailors and desert travellers to navigate before the invention of radar.
