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.

The lake is located very close to MG Road and approach to the lake will normally be involving a lot of traffic jams. The lake is being used by the army to conduct their water drills. Bangalore offers a lot of activities for tourists however if you are on a tight schedule it is not worth visiting this lake.

Located in close proximity to M.G.Road and Brigade Road, this is an artificial lake in the centre of Bangalore city. The lake is quite big, there are small islands within the lake with dense trees. There is a beautiful park located just besides the lake. Nice place to chill out in the evening or morning and enjoy morning/evening walk amidst... More

We recently went for a run around the Ulsoor Lake, and it was so refreshing to see it at a better state in comparison to the last few years. These lakes keep the beauty of Bangalore going, and definitely should be visited. They have to be better maintained.

About 16 years back when I came to Bangalore Ulsoor Lake was a place to visit. But now, there is almost zero maintenance and very few people go to see the lake. People use this as a jogging area. The Authorities have allowed residents to dump litter on the small pools inside and also Idols during Pujas are immersed there.... More

Nice lake and park. Boating experience is good too. But it should be cleaner and properly taken care of. The location is easy to reach too.

Once it used to be the most attractive tourist destination till early 2000. Now its completely neglected and looks like nobody is bothered about the deteriorating condition of this lake come garden.

Visit if you are situated around the lake, not a suggested place during Ganesh Chaturdi(around October), as the roads around will be blocked with deity chariots.
