Umhang Lake


This lake at Wataw (Bataw) village overlooking the plains of Bangladesh is flanked on either side by lush green forests. This lake is attributed to Sajar Nangli who dined at this spot and drank water from a spring to quench his thirst.He and his followers decided to create a lake unlike any other in the Jaintia Kingdom, so they spent several months digging this magnificent lake. The people of Wataw (Bataw) regard the Umhang Lake with reverence and pay homage alongwith sacrifices annually.
