about karanji lake

Built by the Mysore maharaja more than a century back, the Karanji Lake served as a percolation tank which was used by the locals for washing, bathing and drinking. Today, the lake is regarded as one of the biggest lakes in Karnataka, spread over an area of 90 acres. It harbours more than 90 species of resident and migratory birds, several species of butterflies and small mammals, thus providing an excellent example of a wetland ecosystem. The lake is the site for the largest walk through aviary in India, which is quite popular among visitors, especially avid birdwatchers. The birds are almost at touching distance as one takes a stroll on the walkway. Other attractions of the lake include a butterfly park (housing a large variety of plant species to attract butterflies), children's corner and boating facilities. There is a high view tower from where panoramic views of the entire landscape can be seen.
