BADKHAL LAKE HISTORY
Badkhal Lake History – It was built soon after the country got Independence in 1947 to facilitate water supply to the nearby farms.
In 1972, the Haryana government built a Badkhal resort Resort off the lake,
which was a major tourist attraction during the ’70s through to the ’90s.
It was a natural lake situated in Badkhal village near Faridabad,
in the Indian state of Haryana, about 32 kilometres from the national capital of Delhi.
Surrounded by the hills of the Aravalli Range, this was a man-made embankment.
Owing to unchecked mining in neighbouring areas,
the lake began drying up two decades back and is now totally dried up.
There are functional Haryana tourism corporation restaurants in the vicinity.
A flower show is held every spring here. Its name is most probably derived from
the Persian word beydakhal, which means free from interference.
an close to this Lake is Peacock Lake. It is a biodiversity area within
the Northern Aravalli leopard wildlife corridor stretching from Sariska Tiger Reserve to Delhi.
Historical places around the lake include the 10th-century ancient Surajkund reservoir (15 km north)
and Anangpur Dam (16 km north), the similarly dried up
Damdama Lake, Tughlaqabad fort, Adiland ruins and the Temple.
There are several dozen lakes formed in the abandoned open-pit mines in and around the sanctuary.
It is contiguous to the seasonal waterfalls in pali- Dauj- Kot – Villages of Faridabad,
the sacred Manager Bani hill forest and the Asola Bhatti Wildlife Sanctuary.
