Ambazari Lake

Ambazari lake is situated near the western border of Nagpur. It is one of the 11 lakes in Nagpur. It is the largest lake in the city. Nag River of Nagpur originates from this lake. This was built in the year 1870 under Bhonsle rule for supplying water to the city. Government officials and eminent people were supplied water through clay pipes. This lake was surrounded by mango trees, gaining the name Ambazari as Amba means in Mango in Marathi.

The lake was used to supply water to Nagpur for over 30 years. Due to pollution it is not currently used as a water supply.

Garden

The lake also has a garden located just beside it known as Ambazari garden. The garden was established in 1958 on an area of 18 acres of land. [1] This place is managed and preserved by the Nagpur Municipal Corporation. The musical fountain, various electric rides and amusement games were there in the garden. The garden also offers boating facilities and walking trails as an outdoor activity. This is one of the famous tourist attractions of Nagpur. [2]
