It is after a gap of nearly a decade that the lake has reached its maximum level. Ducks, egrets and other small birds have found a new place to roost here.

Tavarekatte is the second major attraction for those visiting Chamundi Hills. Recent rain has created a number of rivulets with water flowing from hill to Tavarekatte.
