Lonar Lake in Maharashtra to be developed as a tourist spot

Lonar Lake in Maharashtra is one of the very important natural wonders of India that was created over 50,000 years ago! However, the lake is not as popular as it should be among tourists till date. In a bid to bring it on tourist radar, Maharashtra has approved a INR 370-crore development and conservation project.

The money will be spent on the preservation and conservation of the Lonar crater that was created by a meteorite collision during the Pleistocene Epoch. The money will also go towards maintaining forests and wildlife there to protect its unique biodiversity. The region also features an old temple which will be renovated under the scheme.
