Karanji Lake is right behind the Mysore Zoo. A very beautiful lake and a children's park. Kids would love this place. Has a small Butterfly park and a netted Aviary in which you find lots of peacocks,fowls,black swans and other birds walking right next to you. Boating facility is available. Very neatly maintained park.

Being on a bird watching trip in the Western Ghats, we visited this lake for about one hour. There is a small island with a lot of breeding bids like Spot-billed Pelican, Painted Stork and others. Very interesting to see so many nice birds in the middle of town.

Those who love to watch some beautiful birds, then there is a caged bird park inside. Though the bird park doesn't have a... More

Must visit for the kids as well as adults. Lots of varieties of birds! They take you in a boat ride showing different kinds of birds. Feels beautiful to see so many birds roaming around so freely around you! Their sounds are amazing to be heard. The lake also has crocodiles! You can see them closely. Very relaxing place and...

If you are feeling lazy and want to relax for sometime near a lake or boating, this is a good place to visit. It is approximately 5 kms from the City bus stand. Its quiet and serene. You can also plan to visit Mysore Mall which is near by.
