Karanji Lake

Karanji is a picturesque lake located at the footsteps of Chamundi Hills, in Karnataka. Spread over an area of 90 acres, it is regarded as one of the biggest lakes in Karnataka.

Karanji Lake, a protected area under the Mysore Zoo authorities, has a butterfly park housing a large variety of plant species to attract butterflies. The lake attracts painted storks, pelicans and darters and a host of other winged beauties.

The lake offers a beautiful view of the Lalitha Mahal Palace, now converted in to a hotel.

The 2000-year-old Chamundeswari Temple, located right on top of the hill is worth visiting.
