Moti Jheel is a lake and drinking water reservoir in the Benajhabar area of Kanpur, which together with its adjoining gardens and children's park is an important tourist attraction. Built during the British Raj, today along with Kamala Retreat and Moti Park, it is an important recreational place in the bustling industrial city of Kanpur, once known as the "Manchester of the East".Moti means pearl and jheel means lake, thus giving its name Pearl Lake.HistoryThe rectangular lake was originally developed during the British Raj, as a drinking water reservoir of the Kanpur Waterworks, and called Septic Tank. Later, as an important urban planning measure by the city administration, it was developed as a public place and a recreational area, with a landscaped garden and a children's park.It is flanked on one side by the campus of Lala Lajpat Rai Hospital and on the other several important Kanpur Nagar Nigam (Kanpur Municipal Corporation) buildings are situated, as is the Kanpur Development Authority (KDA)'s water treatment plant.Major spotsOfficesKanpur Municipal Corporation Town HallKanpur Development Authority Entertainment PlaceLajpat BhawanLakeAmusement ParkGardens
