Hebbal Lake is located in the north of Bangalore in the place where the Bellary Road and the Outer Ring Road meet. This lake was constructed in 1537 by Kempe Gowda and it extends over an area of 75 hectares.


The water of the lake was once pure and was used for the purpose of drinking but now due to the inflow of the untreated sewage and effluents, dangerous weeds have grown. This is good place for bird watchers as more than 70 species of water birds from various parts of India come here. Some of the species of birds seen here are moorhens, purple herons, pintail, little grebe, coot, Eurasian spoonbill, spot billed pelicans, etc.


The lake is under the maintenance of the Lake Development Authority. The area is serene and offers a good escape from the hectic city life. All nature lovers enjoy this place. This is not a good place to visit in summer as the lake dries up during that time.
