Hesaraghatta Lake is a man-made reservoir located 18 km to the northeast of Bangalore. It is a fresh water lake created in the year 1894 across the Arkavathy River to meet the drinking water needs of the Bangalore city.

Route Information:

The lake is around 27 kms from the main Bangalore city located besides the Indian Institute of Horticultural Research. Ride via NH4 till you reach Vidyanagar. Take a right towards Hasaraghatta main road. Drive the road till you reach an arch stating “Indian Institute of Horticultural Research” on the right. Move further on that institute road towards the Central Bank. Just 200 meters from there, you find the lake on your left. Road condition is very good all throughout.

The other way is to go via Jalahalli -> Doda Byalakere -> Hasaraghatta main road. Road condition is not good.

  1. You should go a little beyond the lake, and you will find this lovely big meadow near Taj Kuteeram and Nrityagram (both famous landmarks)….. You can see some pics of it on my blog:
