Condition of Khushal Sar
Khushal Sar has been encroached upon at many places with illegal construction and land filling.
Connection of Khushal Sar
Khushal Sar once stretched from Zoonimar up to the Aali Masjid but now it is considerably reduced. Khushal Sar is connected to the Anchar lake via a small channel. Another smaller lake, known as Gilsar, is connected to the Khushal Sar via a narrow strait, which is spanned by a bridge known as Gil Kadal. The Gilsar lake is in turn connected to the Nigeen lake via the Nallah Amir Khan. Until the 1970s, the Mar Canal drained into this lake providing navigability up to Ganderbal District via the Anchar lake. After the filling up of the Mar Canal, the condition of the lake deteriorated further.
