About this place -

Jail Lake, Thane, Maharashtra, India

Jail Lake, Jail Rd, Thane (W), Thane Dist., Maharashtra

This lake is right situated right besides Thane central jail hence popularly known as Jail Lake. Actually this lake used to be a source of water for Thane Fort that lies close to it. Thane Fort is a ground fort (BhuiKot), meaning made on flat ground instead of on a hill. The Portuguese ruled Thane for over 200 years from 1530 to 1739. During this period Thane was known as “Kasabe De Tana”. Construction of the Thane Fort was started in 1730. In 1737 the Maratha general Chimaji Appa planned the conquest of Vasai and on March 28, 1738 the Marathas conquered the Thane Fort. The fort is presently being used as Thane Central Jail. There is also Killa (Fort) Hanuman Mandir and Central Maidan (ground) nearby where cricket matches are frequently held.
