Ulsoor Lake

Ulsoor lake constructed by Kempe Gowda II during the second half of the second century, is a perfect gateway dotted with picturesque tiny islands. The 1.5sq km lake extending over an area of 125 acres is located on the north eastern fringe of the city centre, close to MG Road. Originally known as 'Halsur' or 'Alasur', this pretty picnic spot is an ideal place for boating and shopping. KSTDC organises boating in the lake and pedal or row-boats can be hired for a requisite amount per hour. It is open on all days including Sundays and government holidays between 9:30 am and 5:30 pm. A swimming pool adjoins the park and there is also a small garden known as 'Kensington Park' to the North-east of the Lake. The lake comes alive during the Ganesh Chaturthi festival in the month of August-September.
