Lake Anosy

Local nameAnosy
LocationAntananarivo, Madagascar

Lake Anosy is an artificial lake in the southern part of the capital city of Madagascar, Antananarivo, about two miles south of Haute-Ville. Ampefiloha is located to the west of the lake, Isoraka to the northwest and Mahamasina to the north.

A swamp was replaced with Lake Anosy during the era of the ruler Radama I. The lake was constructed by James Cameron who gave it a shape of a heart. In the middle of the lake, there is an island connected with the city by an isthmus. On the island there is a French-built memorial to those fallen in the first world war, the Monument aux Morts made by sculptor Barberis and architect Perrin in 1927. In the Radama I era there was a gunpowder factory on the island. Later there was built a summer residence for the Queen Ranavalona I.
