Pakhal Lake is a man-made lake in the Pakhal sanctuary in Telangana, a state in Southern India. The lake was excavated during the reign of Ganapati Deva. Set around the lake is the Pakhal Wildlife Sanctuary spread over an area of 900 sq km. The sanctuary is home to the tiger, leopard, panther and sambhar.
