Shegaon and surrounding area has shortage of water and hence Shri Gajanan Maharaj Sansthan, Shegaon felt the need of a lake with ample of water in Shegaon which would help to solve the scarcity of water. With this aim Shree Sansthan created the artificial lake in Shegaon by lifting water from Man River (9 Km away from Shegaon) into the lake of Anand Sagar. But the mothly expenditure Rs. 50 Lakh for this purpose caused financial burden on Sansthan. Even then, the Sansthan carried out the project of Anand Sagar Lake, in order to increase the water table in surrouding areas of Shegaon. Not only this, the Shree Sansthan decided to develop this lake and its surrounding area with unique combination of spirituality and Amusement park for devotees with nominal donation. And the revenue from it would help to deal with water problem. With this noble vision and objective Shree Sansthan’s most innovative project- Anand Sagar came into exbtance with Shree’s blessings.
