Chilika Lake, Largest Lagoon in India

Chilika Lake is a brackish water lagoon located in the state of Odisha, on the east coast of India. It is the largest coastal lagoon in India and the second-largest lagoon in the world. The lake covers an area of about 1,100 square kilometers during the monsoon season and around 900 square kilometers during the dry season.

Chilika Lake is separated from the Bay of Bengal by a narrow sandy ridge and is connected to the sea by a number of channels. The lake is home to a rich and diverse ecosystem, with over 225 species of fish, 160 species of birds, and numerous species of plants and other wildlife. It is also an important breeding and nesting ground for several species of migratory birds, including the greater flamingo, which visits Chilika Lake in large numbers every year.

Kalijai Temple is located on an island in Chilika Lake. This island temple was built in 1717. The cost of the ride to this island, on a rugged motor-powered boat, was about $20

The island seen in below the clip is called Breakfast Island. No breakfast dosa cart was found on that island. The cost of the ride to this island on a private rugged motor-powered boat was about $10
