Chembarambakkam lake is a lake located in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India, about 25Β km from Chennai. It is one of the two rain-fed reservoirs from where water is drawn for supply to Chennai City, the other one being the Puzhal Lake. The Adyar River originates from this lake. A part of water supply of the metropolis of Chennai is drawn from this lake. This was the first Artificial lake built by Rajendra Chola I the son of Rajaraja Chola and Thiripuvana Madeviyar, prince of Kodumbalur.

During Chennai's water crisis of 2019, Chembarambakkam Lake dried up.

  • A very big lake in Chennai. Fishing is a good hobby here. Walking around the corners of the lake gives a pleasant experience. The lake is somewhat beautiful too.
