Lonar Lake is the Earth’s largest and only hyper-velocity impact crater in basaltic rock. The crater was formed fifty-two thousand years ago, when a meteor crashed into the earth at an estimated speed of 90,000kmph, weighing 2 million tonnes.
Numerous temples around the lake, most of which stand in ruins today, except for the temple of Daitya Sudan at the center of the Lonar town, which was built in honor of Vishnu's victory over the giant Lonasur. It is a fine example of early Hindu architecture. Vishnu Mandir, Wagh Mahadev, Mora Mahadev, Munglyacha Mandir, and Goddess Kamalaja Devia are the other temples found inside the crater.
