Peaceful Powai Lake is an artificial lake that’s a popular attraction in the Powai area. Created by the British at a cost of 6.5 lakh rupees in 1890, the lake was once a source of water supply.

Although its water quality has rapidly decreased in recent years, Powai Lake remains an appealing place to spend time. A stroll along the pathways around Powai Lake is really relaxing, and you’ll be able to enjoy spotting a variety of water birds.
