Massive silting, growth of hyacinths, and sewerage let out into it (from massive development in Powai) is strangling this pristine lake now. Still beautiful. Fishing club there. Use a method of fishing which is illegal in most developed countries ie fould hooking-- hook fish anywhere in the body when it approaches near the bait (balls).

Nothing much to see. Just an average lake which you should not swim in as it has crocodiles. Very crowded at times as well.
