Karanji Lake, Mysore

Karanji lake is located in the city of Mysore. It has a beautiful park around it.The total area of Karanji lake is 90 hectares. While water-spread area is about 55 hectares, the foreshore area measures about 35 hectares.

This is home to lots of bird species, both local and migratory. I could spot Egret, Grey Pelican, Open Bill Storks, Black headed Ibis, Red-naped Ibis, Peacocks, Spotted Ducks, Cormorant and Herons.
