Also referred to as Soole Kere or Shanthi Sagara, this place is a famous tourist attraction and a main source of water supply. The pond, said to be created during 12th century by Princess Shanthi is a second largest pond in Asia.
Apart from being a significant source for drinking and agriculture, the place is also a perfect picnic spot. A temple devoted to Lord Siddeshwara located in the proximity attracts lots of devotees throughout the year. A great channel designed by Sir M Visvesvaraya also attracts a large crowd.
