Attraction details
Type: Bodies of water, Nature & Parks
Owner description: The beautiful Ulsoor Lake, located in the city center, went through a phase of being thoroughly neglected before it was spruced up again. Boating is a possibility here. A visit to this lake can be combined with a visit to the nearby Gurudwara (Sikh house of worship), Bangalore’s largest.

What could be a beautiful lake is very polluted. Some parts are nice to see and others where the garbage builds up smell so bad you can't stand there.

This is maintained by the the Military people. It is well maintained. There is boating. You can go there for a morning walk or jog. This is the best lake inside Bangalore. Good to visit during the day time.

From July, I have had the good luck of spotting several new species of eagles, Fish eagle, Milvus migrans, Pied Harrier, Bonnels eagle, Buzzard,... More
