Gadsisar Sagar Lake, Jaisalmer
(2.8/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Gadsisar Sagar Lake part of your personalized Jaisalmer itinerary using our Jaisalmer tour planner.
