Talwara Lake

Talwara Lake (Hindi: तलवारा झील, talwara jheel) is a small seasonal lake that forms in a depression along the course of the Ghaggar-Hakra River in Hanumangarh district of Rajasthan state of India.[1] In his invasion of India in 1398-99 CE, Timur encamped at the banks of this lake after overpowering Bhatnair Fort in modern-day Hanumangarh.[1] Talwara lake is claimed to be the only lake in the arid landscape of Hanumangarh district.[2] The lake forms only for a few months every year during the annual flooding of the Ghaggar-Hakra river in the monsoon season.[2] It is downstream of the Ottu barrage and reservoir (located in the Sirsa district of Haryana).
