Lonar, a national tourist spot in Maharashtra is a host to many heritage monuments although it has one striking feature- the Lonar Lake. The history behind the formation of the lake is owed to the rocky bodies floating around in space. In the Pleistocene Epoch, when the entire surface of our planet was covered by ice caps and glaciers, a meteor came whizzing down on Earth, leaving behind a huge crater. The age of the lake remains unknown, however, it was initially estimated to be around 52,000 years old. But in 2010, it was said to be 5,70,000 years old. The discrepancy remains.

The place is also endowed with ancient stories and temples built around 1250 years ago
