We came several mornings in a row to enjoy some gentle morning exercise. I would run to one particular place that took my breath away every time. I would definitely revisit this when I return to Mysore.

A walk around the lake in the heart of the city will net you a rich haul of birds. Peaceful well defined walking track around lake makes it easy for all age groups to enjoy the peace and quiet while also getting some exercise in.
