As most of us know or peoples who visited Belgaum know as this is one of the paradise on this earth where anyone can feel relaxed face of life. If the infrastructure of the city (Belgaum) improved there is no other place we can find in India which is better than Belgaum.

So for now, you may be thinking why I am talking all of these…So answer is, yes today I want to walk you all to one of great place in My city which is very Beautiful and one of the great picnic spot if you want to spend some time with your family or if you want to relax for some time to forgot all your sorrows.

The name of this place is “Killa Talav” or “Kote Kere.  The place is only one but there are two names. For some it is “Killa Talav” and for some it’s “Kote Kere”. The meaning of this word is simple i.e

Killa (In Marathi)=Fort,    Kote(In Kannada) =Fort

Talav(In Marathi)=Lake    Kere(In Kannada)=Lake

Killa Talav Belgaum(KoteKere)

The lake, nestling in the heart of the city, adjacent to the historical Belgaum Fort, is now the most sought-after venue by all such individuals who not only like to explore nature’s beauty but also feel a part of it. The Lake is renovated in recent years so well, as it is now one of the tourist spot in north Karnataka.

Imagine how one would feel while taking a walk along a natural lake with the sun rising beautifully and lending a healing touch, and a variety of birds chirping melodiously to make the morning musical, pleasant and welcoming. This imagination will transform into an experience so much that one would seek for it every day on his very first visit to the charming Killa Talav or Kote Kere (Fort Lake).

I will not bore you much with my bad writing skills and now the time to take you to world of natural beauty.

The lake, which has a small island, is now house to a host of birds of different species, which is also attracting bird watchers. A more than two-kilometer long single pathway around the lake with cement chairs to relax on, in the lush green and serene atmosphere, lends a haunting view and delightful feeling to the visitors.

The lake, equipped with different recreational facilities, promises a refreshing feeling and much-needed relaxation after the day’s stressful work, indeed. It also promises great fun for the children, while the young would find it difficult to resist from venturing out into the calm waters in a boat and become one with nature. The lake, which is now managed by Darshan Udyog Samuha, has created several recreational facilities, including games and amusement rides for children, besides boating by investing more than Rs. 60 lakh.

The facilities available here include pedal and motor boats, family train, indoor games, video games, tora-tora, dancing fish, magic bridge (vortex), sun and star, children’s park, jumping balloon, small train, food court, cultural and social activities and beautiful fountains serving as oxy-generators for fish.

I hope you all like the above photos and thinking about visiting this place if you are in Belgaum. You can reach Belgaum by Bus, Train and through Flight (only from Mumbai at present). It’s equally distanced from Bangalore, Mumbai and from Hyderabad i.e  500 kms and 150 kms from Goa.

So visit this place and Enjoy the fresh Air, nature and cool climate 🙂
