Lake / Backwaters
At a distance of 1 km from Ramappa Temple, 69 km from Warangal, Ramappa Lake is a manmade lake situated at Ramappa, Telangana. It is one of the must-include places in Ramappa Temple Tour Packages.
Ramappa Lake is a magnificent example of the irrigation work of Kakatiya Rulers. Constructed in the 13th Century AD by King Ganapathi Deva, the waters of this lake are spread over an area of more than 82 Sq. km. The lake still provides water to irrigate 10,000 acres of land.
The lake is surrounded by beautiful hill ranges that provide a spectacular view, especially during sunset. It is an excellent place for a picnic and one can simply come here and relax under the shade of sprawling trees or walk around appreciating the beauty of nature.
One can go for a short boating trip in the placid waters of the lake. There is a small AP Tourism cottage near the lake which also serves food on demand.
