    artificial and calm lake. Perfect place to swim. Better to visit during summer. Take extra care when you go there. Only those who know to swim can get into the waters  more »

    A huge tank close to Mysore. We went there on a motor biking trip. It is a peaceful slightly hilly area, not crowded at all, with just some basic tea shops at the main temple and view point at the lake shore. Access roads pass though villages and make for a great sight. The tank itself is quite big and the water is clean. Most of the tank shore is not accessible through road - you will have to trek or walk a bit. There is a sandy beach at one end accessible after about ten minutes of walk through a rocky unpaved track. The water was clean but the wind and waves seem to carry all the floating debris on this side,so the beach is littered with all that garbage. Not enough to spoil the view though. The beach seems safe for swimming with gentle inclines. The adventurous can hike around the lake to find their own secluded patches to rest and take a dip.

    Nice place to visit along with friends and family. Coracle rides are a good experience. One can trek on the hillock nearby to reach the other side of the lake. Swimming away from the shore can be dangerous.
