  • Very nice place to visit. I was having lot of apprehension to visit to this place. Did not visit in my last many trips to Mysore, but now I am proved wrong. Such nice place, neatly maintained & lot much to offer to tourists Lot many birds, nice garden, good boating trip, many watch towers & good food in canteen. Lovely place & must be on visitors map
  • Wonderful place to spend time watching the local as well as migratory birds. Boating is a good option to watch the majestic birds from the close-quarters. Beware that there are crocodiles in the river, so you should not put your hands in river-water. There's a canteen available with good food options. One can easily visit from Mysore using public transport.
  • I am amazed with the maintenance of the sanctuary. Variety of birds from different parts of the world migrate here for sometime and fly back. If you are interested in ornothology, you will have feast here. Visit by 9.00AM to hear the birds and have a pleasant experience. You can take a boat ride where crocodiles can be seen passing by.
