  • Foys Lake
The artificial Foys Lake has been developed in Khulshi area, about eight kilometers from Chittagong. In 1924 it was constructed under the supervision of Assam Bengal Railway Authority. The lake was created artificially to meet the demand of water for the people. Then it was known as 'Pahartoli Lake.' Later, the name of the English railway engineer Foy was named after 'Foys Lake.'

Currently, it is owned by Bangladesh Railway. This lake is built on approximately 336 acres of land, by constructing a dam in a narrow valley between the top of the hill from one peak to the other.
