Hebbal lake is an ideal place for the photography fanatics and bird watchers as there are over 70 waterbird species and other rare ones. Hebbal lake is located along the Bellary road in the northern part of Bangalore and is an oasis to many migratory and exotic birds.
This 150 acres long lake was created by the founder of Bangalore Kempe Gowda along with two other lakes in the city in 1537. Later, two artificial islands were created during the restoration and maintenance of the lake and the two islands attract flocks of bird species which is the most attractive feature of the place as the islands have now become a ground for breeding and nesting.
There is a garden adjacent to the park where people often celebrate some leisurely hours. Hebbal lake is glorified post monsoon but dries up during the summer season hence spring is the best time to take a tour around this lake.
