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.

I've been to Ulsoor lake many times because I stayed for many years, compared to other lakes in the city this is far cleaner. The city needs more such conservation efforts so that we don't end up making buildings on them, that's what has happened to many of the city's lakes so this is a shining example that if we... More

Access is limited --check the timings .best time to visit is mornings or sunset time to enhance the experience . Being close to the busy traffic area there is no place for parking - the parking may... More

A very nice location. If local bodies maintain it will be surely one of the best spot in bangalore. The vivekananda park is not maintained. The lake is big but big portion of the lake is not open for public. A place where one can spend one evening. But i wonder a much deserving place is ill maintained and hence... More

Well , I stayed for 6.5 years near to this place and was a good place for a walk. Evening you will find little hesitant to take Elderly people because of the young couples crowd mostly. Good place for a walk and evening timeout in ulsoor lake, located near gurudwara and old madras road.

Considering the standards of public places in India and its cleanliness, Ulsoor lake was a pleasant surprise to me. My Bangalore office is located next to the lake and it gives a stunning view. Children play area and jogging tracks are well maintained. I must recommend a visit to Ulsoor lake on a Bangalore trip.

The lush green water in the lake remains you of a pond; but it's a large lake, in the Center of Ulsoor and close to MG Road. It is an excellent place for morning walk/ jog. You can also do boating in the evenings. The local military uses the lake for rowing practice. However, no one maintains the place well.... More
