'Harike Wetland' also known as "Hari-ke-Pattan", with the Harike Lake in the deeper part of it, is the largest wetland in northern India in the Tarn Taran Sahib district of the Punjab state in India. The wetland and the lake were formed by constructing the headworks across the Sutlej river, in 1953.This man-made, riverine, lacustrine wetland spreads into the three districts of Amritsar, Ferozepur and Kapurthala in Punjab and covers an area of 4100 ha. Conservation of this wetland has been given due importance, since 198788, both by the 'Ministry of Environment and Forests', Government of India and the 'Punjab State Government' (through its several agencies), and over the years several studies and management programmes have been implemented.
