Karanji Lake, Mysore

Karanji Lake is a beautiful lake located in Mysore. The total area of Karanji lake is 90 hectares. While waterspread area is about 55 hectares, the foreshore area measures about 35 hectares. 



It is one of the favorite haunts of migratory birds like herons and egrets. Some of the common migratory birds found here are Grey Pelican, Painted Stork, Ibis, Cormorant, Egret, etc. which nest on trees in the islands present in the lake.



It is under the control of Mysore Zoo Authority and the lake  has been well maintained. The lake is surrounded by a nature park consisting of a butterfly park and a walk-through aviary.



The entire area surrounding the lake has been transformed into beautiful landscaped gardens. The area is planted with attractive flowering and fruit bearing shrubs and trees.
