Away from the crowds in the city, this place is really cool and calm. Visit it if you have time as it is a bit far from Mysore. Carry some food and water with you as there are no stalls nearby.

A beautiful man made lake. Calm, quiet and serene. Do carry plenty of drinking water and snacks if you are visiting this place, as there are very few shops around. Weekends are very crowded at times.
