About Stroll along Rankala Lake

The Rankala Lake is a major attraction in Kolhapur and is directly linked to a well in the historic Panhala Fort. Constructed by Chhatrapatis of Kolhapur, it is located on the western side of the famous Mahalakshmi Temple. Rankala Lake derives its name from the temple of Rankabhairav which is situated at the lake’s center. It is believed that before the 8th century AD, this lake was just a stone quarry but after an earthquake which took place in the 9th century AD, a natural change occurred and water started accumulating in the quarry and gave birth to the lake. Learn about the history and mythological importance of this lake while you visit Kolhapur. Rankala Lake is surrounded by a chowpati, gardens, and a pathway, and is a perfect weekend getaway spot amongst the local people as well as travelers in the city. Take a stroll here and breathe in the fresh air. The tranquility of this lake will soothe you incredibly.
