The lake which is said to be exists for more than 275 years, was established as a source of water supply by Chand Sultan, thenn the ruler of Nagpur. He created the water body in the form of streams being diverted to the Nag River, which was connected to the water reservoir and named it as 'Jumma Talab'.

Subsequently it came to be known as 'Shukrawari Talao' during the Bhonsla and British periods when the first Raghuji declared Nagpur as the capital of his domain in 1742. The picturesque rectangular shaped, Gandhi Sagar reservoir is now enclosed with stonewalls and iron railings. One can also found a small island in the middle of the lake with an attractive Shiva temple and a garden. The lake looks more attractive at the night by the illumination of the yellow mercury light. The lake also offers boating facility to the visitors.
