VIHAR LAKE - Amazing Maharashtra


Vihar Lake
Vihar Lake
Vihar Lake, is a vast water reservoir, built by the British in the year 1860, for supply of Drinking Water in the southern region Mumbai. The lake is located near the Vihar Village within the precinct of the Sanjay Gandhi National Park. That time, the British spent approximately Rs.65 Lacs on the entire project.

Today, Vihar Lake supplies only 3% of the Mumbai City's water requirement, after filtration at Bhandup, where Asia's biggest filtration plant is located.

After the 1993 Mumbai Bomb Blast, access to this place has been curtailed.
