Gadsisar Sagar Lake, Jaisalmer

3.5
#6 of 60 in Nature in Rajasthan
At Gadsisar Sagar Lake, see the wildlife reserve popular among bird-watchers, as well as the cultural landmarks which surround its shores. Artificially made in 1400 CE, the lake served as a conservation tank which supplied the arid city with water. Today it serves as an oasis that harbors many species of migratory birds, so bring a good pair of binoculars to have a closer look. As you explore the lake's coastline, visit the nearby temples and shrines that became a pilgrimage spot for many Hindu devotees. Make sure to bring an umbrella, or a raincoat to stay dry during the monsoon season. Put Gadsisar Sagar Lake at the forefront of your travel plans using our Jaisalmer trip builder site .

  • Beautiful lake. Boat riding is a thrilling experience. Enjoy the beauty specially at afternoon when the sun is setting.
  • The entry to the place is quite good with Rajasthani music all around. Location is good too. The place is nice to click some good photos and that is it about the place. Place highly needs a maintenance specially for hygeine. Urine smell all over the place. The water where people surf their boats needs to be cleaned too.  There is no entry or visit fee or charge. People won't mind paying 20 RS to visit the place if it is maintained.
  • It closes very early in evening. Not able to visit lake. But this lake is still well maintained and good place for tourists.
  • It's feel very good to be their near a water body in a desert. U can enjoy here boating in paddel boats n can see the temples in the centre of the lake built with golden stones.
  • Nice place but ... The lake has not enough water and also the water is not clean...
