Historic and pilgrimage centres :
A salt-lake (Lonar crater lake) formed due to an impact is one of the main tourist attractions of this region. The crater is believed to be formed by the sheer impact of a meteorite weighing 2 million tones, 60 meters wide, travelling at a speed of 90,000 kilometres per hour. This collision is said to have happened some 52,000 years ago creating a dent in the earth, and is 1830 meters in diameter and 150 meters deep. The crater gets its name from the place where it impacted, Lonar. This crater is the worlds oldest meteorite crater and the only meteorite crater in basaltic rock.
