One Shot

X-Y (2 words) were created in 1840 by the two sisters who were related to the Governor General, Lord Auckland. The idea was to make a Biblical - style Y of X. The vast expanse dotted with beautiful trees and shrubs is intersected by winding paths. There is a large artificial lake here. Adjoining the lake is the Pagoda which was brought here from Burma after the British defeated the Burmese in the war of 1884. Give X-Y.
