We drove twice from Bangalore only to enjoy the pure oxygen of this place. Kids love cycling (you can rent one at ₹20-30 for half hour) and we enjoy the leisurely stroll under the shade of various trees. The lake needs maintaining though. The peacocks are a delight to watch. The only issue is that the sprawling park has restrooms... More

I was excited to see this place due to its high ratings but we were unlucky to see less water in the lake. This lake is similar to any other lake. Nothing special about it.

Need lot of maintenance, water is dirty, boats are not maintained well, there is a park next to lake which is comparatively better maintained with lot of birds and play area for kids.

A decent place for outing on weekends... Could have been better managed and more efforts should be put in to clean the lake

A very well maintained place, is ideal for a walk early in the morning. The lake is dry at the moment, but, can imagine how good it must be in the rains. Lots of Birds to see and I do say this is a must see place.

Situated on the Chamundi hill road, we visited this awesome place while returning from Sri Chamundeshwari Temple. Personally I found it even better than ranganathittu bird sanctuary.. There are so many birds including pelicans, ducks, herons, etc. You can also go for boating and you'll be surrounded by these mesmerizing creatures.. Entry fee for adult is 25/- and for boating...
