About Hesaraghatta Lake

Take an early morning drive to the northwestern part of Bangalore and approximately 35 Km ahead, you find a manmade freshwater body. It is Hesaraghatta Lake that hosts a variety of migratory birds. Lesser Kestrel, Quails, Drongos, Larks, Robins and Harriers are spotted here quite often. The rustic environs and natural beauty leaves you wonder-struck. Farms, vineyards, forests and grasslands surround this lake. If you are a keen photographer, don’t forget to take your camera along while visiting this attraction near Bangalore. It was conceived in 1894 by Sir K. Seshadri Iyer, the Dewan of erstwhile Mysore state, to meet the drinking water needs of the city. Last filled in 1994, it is said to be in a deteriorating condition. Despite that fact, kingfishers, bulbuls, greater coucals and purple sunbirds flock this place.
