Lonar Lake in Maharashtra to be developed into tourist spot

 Wednesday, August 3, 2022 


The Lonar Lake or Lonar Crater in Maharashtra isn’t something to be missed. This unusual lake located far from busy city life was formed by a meteorite impact more than 50,000 years before. The spot has been recognized with a Geo-Heritage monument with salty and alkaline water. For tourism promotion in the area and to enable more people witness such natural wonders in India, the Maharashtra Government is thinking to invest Rs. 370 crore for developing as well as conserving this lake.

The money agreed will be utilized for preserving forests and wildlife and for promoting biodiversity. As part of the overhauling plan, the Maharashtra Government is aiming to modernize ancient temples located nearby. Temples like Gomukh Temple, Kamalja Devi Temple among others, are rich in history. In the Buldhana district, a 100-year-old temple, which is Shri Gajanan Maharashtra Sansthan has been traced. It is said to be one of the most hygienic temples in India. Besides temples, there is also the Sindkhed Raja Fort which was built during the 16th century.

Buldhana district also has the Botha Forest, which is opulent in flora and fauna. A footpath for tourists will be created in the Lonar Crater Lake, so that they can see this wonder closely.

Tourists can travel in this area by trekking and boating facilities. The region is typically dry all through the year; but in summers, the temperatures are quite high. In contrast, winters are lower than 10 degrees Celsius.
