"Good view along with boating facility"

It is only a lake for a good view in Mysore and also pleasant minded lake. It is about 12 km from Mysore bus stand and 16 km from railway station. Here there is a boating facility. For boating purpose they take about Rs. 15 per person. I advise travellers to go to this place in the evening.

Nice place for a weekend gateway with your family. Beautiful landscape, quiet place & variety of birds to mention. A great destination for children's to spend quality time. Sit at the edge of lake and walk around for a one hour break.

"A real place for relaxing"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Jun 1, 2015
You really want to spread a smile on your children faces? Karanji Kere Lake is the best place for that. Forget your workplace and home a while. While entering, trees at the left and right sides welcome you. Trees that are grown up to enormous heights. If you wish to really put your heart into it, just watch the trees at the entrance itself.

There are many varieties of play things in the park for children. What else would children like, other than playing in sand and soil? If you don't transform yourself into a child, while your child is playing or if you want to relax for a while as a grown up, just watch the varieties of birds chirping and welcoming into their cages (oh no, you are not allowed, otherwise you are a bird!).

Walk past towards the cages. At the right side you would find BIRDS place. You really wouldn't have seen the birds in such a close view. It is an arm's length distance. If you are worth the birth (at least, it is my feeling! ), the peacock would show its feathers, trains during its dance. It is all artificial whoever says it is peacock colour, of a saree or whatsoever. Peacock's neck colour only lies in Peacock. You wouldn't find that colour elsewhere. IT IS REALLY A HAUNTING FEELING, if you see the Peacock's dance! Words wouldn't suffice the actual feeling.

Last but not least, it is a place and feeling that is hard to leave behind.

This is a must watch for all sightseeing people. The serenity, the calmness. Just sit beside the lake and let the atmosphere drench you. Awesome experience.

"Peaceful and Serene place"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Dec 30, 2014
It is one of the must see places if you are with kids. It is located behind Mysore Zoo. This place is much peaceful, cleaner and less popular / crowded than Ranganthittu. Entry charges are 25/- for adults and car parking is 30/-. It is open from 830am to 530pm.
There is a park adjoining Karanji lake with plethora of swings, slides etc for kids of all age group. My daughter totally freaked out. They also have a mini aviary, where birds are let loose inside a big enclosed area and they visitors can get in. It was nice to see birds with at least some freedom and comfort. They also have a butterfly park but I didn't go till there. You can also hire a bicycle to go around the place from ticketing counter.
Boating is one of the main attraction here but it is managed very poorly. Even though your ticket has a serial number but it is hardly followed. Everyone huddles around ferry point jostling each other to get in first. Boatman calls people in randomly and there are good chances to slip in the water. If you are with Kids / elderly people you have to be extra careful. Overall a nice place to spend your evenings in peace.

Be among the nature, fresh green environment, cool waters and the birds at the Karanji Kere Lake. It is an immersion place for the Ganesha idols after the festival. Numerous species and breeds of birds like the wild fowls, peacocks, ducks, wild hens, pelicans and the Great Indian Hornbill can be seen enjoying the cool waters of the lakes or in the trees.
