Nag River of Nagpur originates from this lake. This was built in the year 1870 under Bhonsle rule for supplying water to the city. Government officials and eminent people were supplied water through clay pipes. This lake was surrounded by mango trees, gaining the name Ambazari as Amba means in Mango in Marathi. The lake was used to supply water to Nagpur for over 30 years. Due to pollution it is not currently used as a water supply.
