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.

Visit if you are situated around the lake.

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.

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.

"Ulsoor Lake" is in "Ulsoor" area of Bengaluru and very close to the CBD (Central Business District). The overall layout of the lake is very good but due to very bad maintenance the water is green. Many social agencies join hands with the Govt. agencies for the maintenance of the lake, but due to the laxity of the Govt. the... More

Beautiful lake at an excellent location. In the center of the city having the clean military area on one side, Shri Aurobindo Ashram on other side and the main market close-by. One must visit it when in Bangalore.

Pupular among locals this place is known for jogging and other outdoor activities. During ganesh chaturthi the lake can be poluted due to idol immersion.

I am not sure if this lake should be there as a tourist spot in tripadvisor. I go around this regularly and see people sitting around. Mostly it is couples getting some time together. Morning people walk around here. The water is not clean. Nothing to talk about on this lake. There are a few temples and cafes around the... More

All those who remember the lake where one would go boating in the cool eve, its time to break your illusions. The boats are there but boating is gone. With all the overgrowth and the garbage dumped the lake is dying. Nobody seems to care.

Nice peaceful place.to spend some time with your family. Located in heart of the city. Go for boating, its decent experience. Though the lake needs proper maintenance and cleaning.
