The Kukkarahalli Lake is a lake that was created in 1864 under the leadership of Mummadi Krishnaraja Wodeyar (1794–1868) of the Mysore Dynasty. it is Located in Mysuru University Campus adjoining to Manasa Gangotri and Kalamandira (Ramayana) which is just 3 km from the main city of Mysore. THIS LAKE Spread across an area of 58 hectares, the Kukkarahalli Lake is a J shaped lake with a shoreline of almost 5 km. The Lake also used to be a source of water supply to the city of Mysore but over the years, sewage and excessive land encroachments and blockage of water flow sources almost led to the eutrophication of the lake.
The views from the north shore are particularly attractive with the lake and its surrounding trees, the spire of the deputy commissioner's offices rising above them and the low rise of the Chamundi Hill in the background. There is a 4.5 km walkway on the periphery of the lake with shaded stone benches for visitors to sit, relax and enjoy the scenic serenity of the lake.
Kukkarahalli lake is home for more than 100 species of birds, During the migratory season, the lake plays host to a variety of winged visitors, some from as far as Siberia. The birds found in the lake are Pelican, Yellow-eyed Babbler, Small kingfisher blue, Heron –Grey and Purple, Egyptian vulture, Black Headed Ibis, Bulbul, Pied Wagtail, Indian Robin, Kites, Larks. these birds can spot all over the year.
