Anand Sagar and surrounding lake

Anand Sagar is a building complex, lake, and tourist attraction in Shegaon, Maharashtra. The site was constructed by the Shri Gajanan Maharaj Mandir Trust to solve local water resource issues, and has since become a tourist attraction and pilgrimage site.


The complex at Anand Sagar was constructed by the Shri Gajanan Maharaj Mandir Trust as a means to create jobs in Shegaon, bring in tourist revenue, and provide reliable access to water.[1] The project had an initial budget of ₹300 crore.[2]

The site consists of an artificial lake and a number of buildings. Buildings present include gardens, entertainment buildings, an amphitheater, and temples.[3] The lake was made by drawing water from a nearby river and allows Shegaon to better manage water resources.[1]

Anand Sagar was used as a model by several other complexes in India.[4][5]
