The Lonar Lake is 56,000 years old and is a saline soda lake located at Lonar in Buldhana district, Maharashtra, India. This lake is both acidic and alkaline in nature, and its waters turn a mysterious pink every now and then. Science says that the lake was created by a meteor impact during the Ice Age and that the colouring is owed to the microorganisms formed in it. However, our Puranas have a whole different story to tell.
