Powai Lake

This manmade lake is situated in north Mumbai. It stands to the west of the Indian Institute of Technology, a leading institute of Science and Technology in India. The lake was built by the British in 1890, to provide water for the city. It gets its name from Framaji Kavasji Powai Estate, owned by a Parsi merchant. Located just 25km from Mumbai, it is a perfect retreat for tourists as well as locals. Powai Lake is easily approachable from King's Circle, Sion, Kurla, Santa Cruz and Andheri.
