Bhushi Dam in Lonavala

This Dam was built in the late 1860’s on the Indrayani river by the British for the purpose of water supply to the steam engines of the “Great Indian Peninsular railway”.The lake formed by this dam overflows over a series of steps during peak monsoon as seen in this photo and is a major tourist attraction .The lake created by Bhushi Dam is also used for power generation by the “Tata Power Co Ltd”.
