This place is located 12 kms before Mysore on B'lore-mysore highway. Nice place for Nature lovers, We could see few migratory birds, Boating was not available due to overflowing of cauvery river. Well maintained garden, peaceful atmosphere.

This is very near to Srirangapatna. From the Mysore Srirangapatna highway you need to go some 1.5kms. since I visited in the afternoon I didn't able to see much birds. But the place is good.
