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.

“evening outing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

I went to this Lake with my cousins. We did boating in the lake, It was an average experience. Some part of the lake is not so clean. There aren't many things to eat as well.

Not so happening place as I had thought of.

“Nothing Great !!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

Ulsoor Lake is a vast water body in the heart of Bangalore.Well maintained by MEG personnel,who religiously take up clearing of weeds in the lake.Good islands in the lake but not much for tourists.The boating is below par.Not much restaurants,stinking washing rooms make it not worth a visit.The boulevard on the other side is preferablybetter to take a walk around the lake.

Lake is maintained fairly well. Good to drive by and see the beauty of the lake and trees in the centre island.

“Mirage”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

Pretty pretty pretty... area surronding is very highly rated though. Yu can walk around the lake. Do a bit of boating. Some nice cafes around to have a leasurely sip while you stare at the deep green water....

“Lake dirty, toxic green, surrounded by fences - drop point for Ganesha's statues (during Ganesh Chathurthi)”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

I went there during Ganesh Chathurthi festival season as it's an official drop point for Ganesha's statues. During that time you could see a very happy crowd dropping in the water big decorated Ganesha's statues. Some even required the use of a crane!
Interesting times but that only happens during a small period (my local friends told me the best day to attend would be on the weekend following the day).

Now, if you go on a regular day (out of the festival seasons), well, there is nothing really interesting to do (a little trip in boat) or see.
