This is the third largest Lake made up because of meteorite attack. The water is saline with pH of 10.7
In Hindu scriptures this incident is mentioned as "Lavanasur" i.e. Asur (Giant)made up of (Lavan) Salt is buried here by Lord Vishnu. The Daityasudan Temple beside gives this story.
According to the hypotheses, after this fall of meteorite, due to volcano tremendous smoke and dust is thrown in the sky. The result was fall in temperature and death of giant reptile world.
Очень красивое озеро!
