Owner description: The beautiful Ulsoor Lake, located in the city center, went through a phase of being thoroughly neglected before it was spruced up again. Boating is a possibility here. A visit to this lake can be combined with a visit to the nearby Gurudwara (Sikh house of worship), Bangalore’s largest.

“Needs more care and maintenance!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 December 2013

The premier water body near the MG Road area has suffered neglect in recent years. The water is brackish and dirty and the place can be a mess as a result of idol immersion during Durga puja and Ganesha Chaturthi. There is a track around most parts of the circumference of the lake for walkers and hawkers sell small eats like chaats, tender coconut, ice creams, fried groundnuts, etc. during evening hours. This attraction has great potential if it is maintained well and if it provides activties for visitors like boating, kayaking, mini-zoo, etc. Even the corporation/municipal swimming pool which was closed for renovation many years back is in utter state of neglect.
