Wular Lake (also spelt Wullar) is one of the largest fresh water lakes in Asia. It is situated in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir, between the cities of Sopore and Bandipore . The lake was formed as a result of tectonic activity and is the largest freshwater lake in Asia.
The River Jhelum feeds into the lake, which acts as a natural flood reservoir. The size can vary between 12 and 100 square miles (30 to 260 square kilometers), depending on the season.

Sambhar Salt Lake is India's largest salt lake and is located 96 km south west of the city of Jaipur (Northwest India) and 64 km north east of Ajmer along the National highway 8 in Rajasthan.
