Lake is filled with weeds and not so well maintained. Boating activity is available if water level is good, else, you can simply go and enjoy the place. Lot of birds will come to this lake. Not far from Mysore city.

One of the excellent water bodies in Mysore, it attracts a lot of birds and luckily it's on the quieter side of the city. The authorities would do well to spruce up the surroundings and create more facilities. However, this is one of the must visit areas in Mysore.

The Karanji Lake is one of those places that is fast becoming a hot tourist spot. The park consists of a huge walk-in birdcage, beautifully manicured gardens and the Karanji Lake. It is quite...
