Not so great garden. the light & sound show is pathetic, only 3 sprinklers respond to music. one of the music is "sare jahan se accha!". Too poor to visit all the way from Mysore, view some museum or take ab elephant ride instead.

You can idle away sitting and enjoying the lake. There is an enclosing where there are pigeons, white doves, peacocks, pea hens, different varities of hens, etc.
There is a watch tower.
The place is well maintained, clean

I visited this place ~4PM when the weather was pleasent. This place has a lake with boating facility, a huge enclosure for birds and people are allowed to walk in to the enclosure. We can find 5-6 peacocks and many other birds in the enclosure, however the major attraction is the peacock ofcourse. The place also has a very good play area for kids. There is a butterfly park inside the Karanji lake but we have to walk ~1.5 kms for that. I did not go there but heard we can find many butterflies there. The entry fee for the lake is Rs 20/- for adults. There are separate charges for parking, still and video cameras. Never miss this attraction when you visit mysore. It is a very quiet, pleasant and calm place to relax. I am sure our mind will become fresh. Not many people will come there unlike mysore zoo which is always crowded.
