Upvan Lake, Thane, Maharashtra, India

Upvan Lake, Pokhran Road no. 2, Near Shivaji Nagar, Thane (W), Maharashtra.

Upvan Lake is a very large lake in Thane, surrounded by serene Yeoor Hills. It lies near the border of Sanjay Gandhi National Park and at the junction of Pokhran roads no. 1 and 2. This natural lake was reconstructed by J. K. Singhania, who also created a beautiful Ganesh Mandir near the lake. Once a major source of water for Thane City, the lake now serves as a recreational spot for locals. Being so close to Sanjay Gandhi National Park, it is infamous for frequent leopard sightings and reports of crocodiles in water. Hence swimming in the waters is prohibited and people are advised to visit only during daytime. The Upvan Lake is most famous for Sanskruti Arts Festival and Upvan Art Festival hosting numerous classical singing, instrumentals recitals, dance shows as well as exhibitions of sculptures, paintings and handicrafts. These festivals are held in the month of January and attract large number of art enthusiasts as well as famous artists from all over Mumbai.
