Kukkarahalli Lake - Review
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.

Kukkarahalli Lake, Mysore Reviews
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.
Very nice place to walk. You can circle the lake, couple of rounds for daily exercise. Have very good greenery, walking track very well laid out. Have chairs to sit if you get tired walking or jogging. Have ample parking for two and four wheeler. Can get beautiful views of sunrise and sunset. If you are lucky you can snap beautiful birds.
Has a very good walking and jogging path. Feels good to walk here. You can see quite a few birds here. Ideal for jogging in mornings and evenings.
This is one of the underrated visiting place in Mysore. Underrated, because tour operators often omit this place from their list and people who are coming to visit Mysore don't get a glimpse of quietness and serenity. This place is popular among local people. People take stroll around the lake for morning and evening walk. If anyone is visiting Mysore and got some time in hand in evening, I would suggest to visit this place once. You will see plenty of flora and fauna around.
Beautiful nature. A huge lake in Mysore. There is a bird sanctuary in middle of it
