Save 'Swarna Sarovara' - Our Kukkarahalli Kere

This petition had 223 supporters

The Kukkarahalli Lake in Mysore, described as ‘Swarna Sarovara’ by the famous poet Kuvempu, is one of the trade marks of the Mysore Dynasty. It is home to hundreds of rare birds and other flora and fauna. It is a quiet place and a haven for joggers and strollers. With the Chamundi Hills in the background, it offers a beautiful landscape.

But, over the years, this lake has been exploited and degraded beyond recognition. The waters are dotted with plastic and clogged with sewage. The biodiversity is depleting and the birds and fish are dying. The once beautiful lake now emanates a stench and is dying slowly.

Kukkarahalli Kere (Lake) and its environs are unique. It is home to many birds, attracts migratory birds and is a place of great beauty. The less commercialised it is the better. Musical fountains will bring artificial lighting and crowds at a time of the day the birds roost. It will bring noise and garbage. The lake itself is very sensitive and has a great history
