“Beautiful Lake”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2013 via mobile

This lake is located very close to the University of Mysore. Entrance to this campus is free. As you enter you are greeted by the Fish Restaurant and a small park.

Except for the sign that says Beware of Crocodiles (in the local language Kannada), the surroundings are beautiful. The last crocodile that was spotted at this lake was in 2010 (Source: Wikipedia).
