Header Image: Khadakwasla Lake Pune
From the NDA (National Defense Academy) site:
The Khadakwasla Lake itself is formed by the dam, built in 1863-1880 on Mutha river, which emerges from the confluence of Ambi and Mose rivers. In 1961, the Khadakwasla Dam had to be blown, as the Panshet Dam overflowed, causing devastating floods in the city of Pune. The dam was later rebuilt in 1965. Khadakwasla Lake is one of the main reservoirs meeting the fresh water requirements of the Pune city. The Lake spans a length of 17 Kilometers and has a width of 1 kilometer. The total catchment area of the Lake is about 501 square kilometers and its depth varies between 40 feet to 120 feet.
The picture of the lake as a long shot which is on now is the third in the series and the comments of this post were meant for the first one. Picture is copyrighted to me.
