Imagine high-rises rubbing shoulders with airy suburban layouts, surrounded by the hustle and bustle of metropolitan city life and the glint of up-and-coming malls that boast of big brands and bigger sales. This is what one can expect from living in Maharashtra’s Lake City, or Thane West, an area that is quickly becoming a dream residential area for its ability to provide a slice of authentic Mumbai city life with the added advantage of more greenery, open spaces, and reduced pollution.
Thane is known as the City of Lakes for the 35 lakes that the region contains. Most of these lakes are in Thane West, the most famous of which is the Masunda Lake or Talao Pali. It is a huge tourist attraction for its scenic beauty and boating and water scooter facilities. The lake also has cultural and religious importance because the Kopineshwar Temple, which is Thane’s oldest temple, and the Gadkari Rangyatan, a drama theatre and hub of entertainment, are both situated on the banks of the lake.
