Kanjia Lake is a natural lake at the northern outskirts of Bhubaneswar, Odisha, India. While the main lake covers 75 hectares , the entire wetland covers an area of 105 hectares with the scuba diving facility. It has a rich biodiversity and is a wetland of national significance which is beneficial for maintaining the metropolis's ecology. The lake's environment includes 37 species of birds, 20 species of reptiles, 10 species of amphibians, 46 species of fish and three species of prawns, 10 species of sub-merged macrophytes, 14 species of floating macrophytes and 24 species of emergent macrophytes.
The lake is dealing with risk from uncontrolled quarrying, the dumping of stable waste and haphazard actual estate creation on its fringe areas. The lake is part of the Nandankanan Zoological Park and is used for recreational boating by site visitors. Aquatic vegetation are flowers that have adapted to living in aquatic environments.
