About Kukkarahalli Lake

In the heart of Mysore city lies Kukkarahalli Lake. Home to more than 180 types of birds, you can spot Painted Storks, Pelicans, Eurasian Spoonbills, Black-crowned Night Herons, Oriental Darters and many such exotic species here. With a shoreline of approximately 5 Km, this beautiful lake is situated at the University of Mysore. It was created in 1864 by Mummadi Krishnaraja Wodeyar to provide irrigation to 10,000 acres of land outside the city. The view of the lake from the North Shore is mesmerizing. You get to see a lane of trees beside the serene waters of the lake and the Chamundi Hills add more beauty to the landscape of this attraction in Mysore. Shaded stone benches are put alongside the shore where you can sit and relax while appreciating nature.
