Lonar Crater

About 50,000 years ago a huge meteorite hit the earth near this place known as Lonar, with the force of 6 Mega Ton bombs, creating a crater of 1830 meters in diameter and 150 meters deep. This is the only lake in the world formed by meteorite impact in basaltic rock. Around 165 km from Aurangabad, this place is an ecological wonder. The water of this lake is saline as well as alkaline. There are many temples on the banks of this lake and are known as Yadav Temples. These temples are called the Hemadpanti temples as they are built by Hemadri, who was a military general of the Yadav period. There are altogether thirty-two temples, seventeen monuments, thirteen kundas/lakes and four inscriptions at Lonar. They all belong to the Yadav and the medieval periods. These eight hundred year old temples have been the subject of serious study.
