Jakkur Lake, Bangalore

The Jakkur Lake in Bangalore is in the north-eastern part of the city. Today, it is one of the largest and cleanest water bodies in the city.



This would not have been possible without the initiative taken by the people who took keen interest in developing it into a beautiful and scenic place. This 160 acre lake allows for limited fishing activities and is frequented by various birds.



Among other birds the pelicans and painted stork throng this lake as they come here for nesting. As a result this park has now become paradise for bird watchers.

I am extremely happy that the initiative might help preserve this lake...and allow the birds to live among us.

Nice pics...hope it stays that way. Most of the lakes in Bengaluru are dead for reason I don't need to explain. I had talked about water pollution issues I had seen in rivers and lakes, in Pune and also in Bengaluru here on my blog
