Known as the 'City of Lakes', Bhopal has a great fusion of picturesque beauty, modernity, and classic and authentic architecture. It has two most beautiful lakes namely, Upper Lake and Lower Lake. The Lower Lake is also known as Chhota Talab. The two lakes are separated by an over-bridge called Lower Lake Bridge or Pul Pukhta. The lake was built in 1794 to commemorate the beauty of the city. The construction took place under Chote Khan, a minister of Nawab Hayat Muhammad Khan Bahadur.
Lower Lake, in particular, is tranquil, peaceful, and charming and is cosseted amidst majestic hills. The Lower Lake has no source of fresh water hence it receives seepage from Upper Lake. Along with Upper Lake, it makes Bhoj Wetland. The lakes represent serenity yet suffers pollution from the sewage. The Government is taking steps to resolve the pollution problem of the lake. Also, the Madhya Pradesh Boat Club provides water boat activities for adventure lovers.
