The Wodeyar King had this lake constructed in the 19th century in order to provide water for irrigation for the land outside the city. Over the years, human activity led to eutrophication of the water, prompting the University of Mysore and other civil development bodies to step in to preserve the lake. Their efforts were successful, but the damage to wildlife is still evident. Once, over 10000 birds would fly to the lake – now it’s less than 2000. Still, that’s something, and the three mile pathway around the lake is provides for an excellent and relaxing strolling opportunity, and you can rest on the stone benches on the path.

Its a very fine place with excellent SUNSET AND SUNRISE POINTS, but maintenance is an issue. At least the walking tracks must have adequate barricades and lighting. Since the water has crocodiles. The main entrance has an excellent outlet for fried fish. :)
Big lake.. Good walking spot. Sunset looks very nice. Many birds are seen here.
It's a among many natural landscape where people usually come in morning or evening slot. Walk /jog/run/talk/meditate/breathe /enjoy /celebrate. The lake is beautiful as usual, but don't expect it to be finely maintained everywhere. Grass, bushes, creepers. Individually, I loved it.
Nice environment in early mornings. Good for joggers and one who is interested in photography. Because, many birds and fishes play in the mornings. Also one can enjoy the wonderful beauty of the nature. Have a practice to visit everyday. It keeps your mind fresh whole day. It will be open in the mornings and also in the evenings. In fact, this is one of the best place in the city amongst many of them.
This is one good hangout for bird watchers. This is place is famous for morning and evening walks and other physical exercises. There is a small kids playground park is there. So those place becomes a good family hangout. Kids can play, those who want to walk out jog can go around the lake. Those who want to enjoy the beauty of the lake can sit on the benches and savour the view.
