The Upvan Lake, an artificial, eco-friendly lake in Thane, Maharashtra, built-in 1880 by Thane Municipal Corporation, was re-constructed by JK Singhania for the supply of water to the Raymond Factory. It is now regarded as one of the most scenic lakes in the country, famously known for hosting the Sanskruti Arts Festival annually. Set in the backdrop of Yeoor Hills, it is a perfect setting for a picnic with your family or simply a stroll with your lover. Also known as Thane’s Lover’s Paradise, the lake was once used as a major source of water supply in the city. Now, however, it is used solely for recreational purposes with several activities being provided.

At the center of the lake, lies a statue of Lord Shiva, which was constructed to measure the depth of water around it. Adjacent to the lake is a temple dedicated to Lord Ganesha for the devotees to offer prayers. The Upvan Lake was one of the thirteen lakes to be restored by Thane Municipal Corporation using the bioremediation technique to clear the silt and marine plants to increase the oxygen level in the water.

    We often visit upwan lake to roam, spend leisurely hours with dear ones, excercisie, boating and munching onto favourite dishes midst cool breeze from yeoor hills. This is one of my favourite places in thane. But Times Sanskriti arts festival was a heart throbbing experience for me this year ..An amazing weekend right on the edge of the lake and well organised event for people of all ages. All art performances were mersmerising and light decoration was completely eyecatching. I really loved to cherish the aspects of our Indian art and culture with my Son Aayush.
