Powai Lake

Powai Lake was named after Framaji Kavasji Powai Estate and is a manmade lake, lies in the northern suburbs of Mumbai, in the Powai Valley where a village known as Powai exists. The city suburb known as Powai also bears the same name as it has been named after this lake only.

At the time of construction, the lake possessed an area of about 2.1 sq km with the depth of around 3 m, at the periphery, which further changed and extended to 12 m at its deepest. The Powai Lake has been kept under many stages of water quality degradation. The water of lake, which was once used to supply as the drinking water for the populace of Mumbai now has been declared as unpalatable. However, the lake still stands as a tourist attraction.

Just at a 25 km drive from Central Mumbai, Powai Lake is a perfect getaway from the hurly-burly of the city. At present this once pristine and serene location is struggling for its existing with depositing and incursions of hyacinths.

The lake has been settled on for giving it on lease the Lake to the Western India fishing Association, as declared by the government. Efforts are being made in order to conserve and preserve this beautiful lake.

This beautiful and serene lake is also very popular for being positioned near the Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT Bombay) and National Institute of Industrial Engineering (NITIE). Powai Lake is accessible to reach as one can board a local train to the Kanjurmarg station and from there you can hire a rickshaw. The place can be reached via Kings Circle, Sion, and Kurla or through Santa Cruz and Andheri.
