Since i have started talking lakes, let me continue with another lake. The "Karanji lake" is situated on the way to the chamundi hills, just behind the zoo. The lake is being maintained by the zoo authorities and remains in good condition. Generally the lake is open for the public. But tuesdays there seems to be a restriction of some sort. Boating was allowed in the lake, however, things seem to have changed with a few accidents happening in the lake.
This lake also has its own share of birds and Butterflys. It is also called a nature park, due to its huge butterfly population. You can take a look at it in the evening light at
The lakes in mysore may go the same way that lakes in all the bigger cities have gone. Attempts will be made to make them land fills and build tall buildings.Lets hope the sanity in men will survive and we will let these lakes live.
