I walked/hiked around Bhushi lake recently and really enjoyed it. On Google maps I noticed a "Shivsagar lake" close to Bhushi. No info on the net. I decided to make a trip there and walk around Shivsagar lake, there also appears to be a dam. The closest road to the lake appeared to be Jalvaayu road. When I reached there I found it to be the entrance to INS Shivaji, a Indian Naval station. And, of course, it was walled off (barbed wire and all).

I decided to walk around a bit, on Vaayu road, until the wall turned back towards the lake. I reached point A (below). Got a decent view of the lake but was disappointed I could not reach the lake. Took a path left (B) and after about 10 minutes reached a waterfall (now dry) that feeds the lake. Walked back to A. That's when I noticed a path along the wall (see below). I could not resist and followed it. For a while it seemed to lead nowhere. Then I found some steps, strange. The path turned right and continued between two walls. Walked on and came across a small mandir (C)! The path ended there. Looks like not many people know about this mandir. I had to sweep away the leaves.

It was much closer to the lake and a really nice peaceful place. I ended up spending the afternoon there.
Really exciting to find something like this :-)

Does anyone know if, and how, I can get to the dam on Shivsagar ?
