About the Puttenahalli Lake: Two years ago, the lake which covers an area of about 13 acres was on the brink of extinction. Now it is home to several species of water and land birds, butterflies and many insects. Over 200 trees have been planted around the periphery of the lake which teems with fish, crabs, water snakes, etc. In short, the lake is natural world in a
microcosm, a sanctuary in the middle of a concrete urban jungle.
