#1 of 7 in Things to do in Karnal
Karna Lake is a major tourist attraction in the Karnal district of Haryana. It is located at a distance of 125 km from both Chandigarh and Delhi, thus serving as a midway halt while traveling between the two cities on the famous Grand Trunk Road. Folklore has it that Karna, a famous character from Indian history, who played a major role in the war of Mahabharat, used to bathe in this lake. It was at this spot that he gave away his protective armor to Indra, the Godfather of Arjuna, Karna's arch-enemy. It is surmised that the city of Karnal derives its name from Karna-Taal, which translates to Karna Lake. That may also be the reason for Karnal to be called the City of Karna in local parlance.

  • The Karna Lake, situated at Oasis Tourist Complex, maintained by Haryana Tourism. This is wonderful place to spend weekends. Boating facilities are available here, but no fishing allowed. This is quite a pleasant place of Karnal. State government should provide some more attention to beautify this place even more.
  • This place is good for spending time with family though lake water is not much clear but boating facility is there and u can relax yourself while boating .It's a good place for daily morning walk and good quality food is available here .This place also has some swings for children and ducks too .You can click pictures here with bamboo trees .Also you can do shopping here .
  • this is the very good place on Delhi Chandigarh highway good place for family and kids and this is good place for couple as well you can seat around the lake , kids can enjoy boating 2-3 restaurant available there but is costly this place is just 4 km from Karnal bus stand. 2 hour time is enough to saty here .
  • A great place to relax. Nice sunset view. Nice restaurants. Boating.
  • Peaceful place to spend 3-4 hours with family including lunch in their cafeteria. ..boating and swans are worth doing and watching while you spend time with your date/family
