about bhandardara lake

Also called Lake Arthur Hill, the lake was created when Wilson Dam was built across the Pravara River. The dam, one of the country’s oldest and at a height of 492 ft, was constructed by the British to provide irrigation to the Ahmednagar region. The design and structure of the dam are interesting and unusual. When the sluice gates open, they create two huge 60-to- 80-ft cascades of water that gush down the rocks below, creating a spectacular sight. At the base of the dam is a large garden that is a popular picnic haunt. The water released from the dam creates many tiny rivulets, which are channelled all around the park before converging at the main stream and rushing downwards.
