Maybe once upon a time, it was a very beautiful lake but now as it has turned out to be a place where all the dumping takes place.

The place is nice with different kind of birds all over, but need a lot of improvement with the waste management.
A lot of plastic bottles can be seen all around with all sitting placed in damaged condition.

Though a nice place to watch birds like earget, pond heron, cormorant, blue tailed bee eater, swallow, parakeet, shikra, Oriental Robin, water hen are few to be named.

During entrance you'll be warned with a board "Beware of Crocodiles" but i didnn't found any in my 3 visits.

Let's set the right expectations. It's a reservoir with sluice gates in case water needs to be released downstream and there's a nearby park. That's it.
Reaching the place is quite easy, take the APPA junction exit on ORR and come towards the himayat Sagar road. There are plenty of signage so you can't get lost enroute.
There is a parking ready to accommodate around 30 -40 cars. Once you are in the place, you see 2 gates, one for the park and other for the reservoir.
The reservoir doesn't close till late but the park gate closes by 5pm, so plan accordingly.
The gate for the reservoir takes you on a mile of walk along the reservoir fence right up to the sluice gates and you can cross the gates and have some extra walk. The waking road is clean and picturesque. You can take a lot of nice pics. You can see a variety of birds chirping around, just be ready with your cameras to take the best shot.
The park beside the reservoir also had some nice species of flowers and birds. There's a small play area for kids.
Best is to walk the long distance along the reservoir and then take some rest in the park. But choice is always individual.
The reservoir and parking is free, however, for the park, adults are charges 15/- per head.
Coming to the food, you see a lot of bhutta(corn) sellers. Refreshing to have them in reading season.
Right opposite to the place you have small refreshments points with some tea and bhajji sellers.
Few of them sell fish fry, it's cheap and tastes great, non veg lovers can have a bite.

It is good to visit this lake on a weekend but not daily. The park beside is good but there is an entry to it. There are also parking charges.
