Lower Lake
 

Bhopal is named as 'the city of lakes' because of its two beautiful artificial lakes namely the Lower Lake and the Lower Lake. These two lakes are separated from each other by an over bridge called Pul Pukhta or Lower Lake bridge. Built in the 11th century these two urban water bodies are jointly called as Bhoj Wetland, which is now a Ramsar site. They are considered as a major source of drinkable water for the residents of the city, serving around 40% of the residents with nearly 30 million gallons per day.

Lower Lake alias Chota Talaab lies in the heart of the city towards the east end of Upper Lake was constructed during the year 1794 by Chote Khan, a minister in the kingdom of Nabab Hayat Mohd. Spread over a catchment area of  9.6 sq km and bordered by the magnificent Kamala garden, lower lake is a beautiful remnant of the great Mugal Empire. For the adventure lovers, the lake provides exciting boating facilities in sail, paddle and motorboats. 

The beauty and charm of the pond is greatly affected by the human settlements from all sides. The water in the lake is contaminated by the wastes and sewages from the various households in various parts of the city.
