The authorities at Ranganathittu Bird Sanctuary and Brindavan Gardens have temporarily suspended boating activities at the tourist destinations. Boating has been stopped at Brinda- van Gardens as the authorities have taken up the repair works of the corroded sluice gates at KRS reservoir through which water is supplied to the boating activity.

Meanwhile, the authorities have also stopped boating activity at Ranganathittu Bird Sanctuary owing to the heavy flow of Cauvery river. However, the authorities have imposed restriction on visiting both the places which attracts a lot of tourists during this time of the year.

Sources said that around 2,000 people visit Brindavan Gardens everyday and Ranganathittu attracts around 1,000 visitors every day.
