#4 of 12 in Parks in Jodhpur
Kaylana Lake is located 8 km west of Jodhpur in Rajasthan, India. It is an artificial lake, built by Pratap Singh in 1872. The lake spreads over an area of 84 km2. In ancient times this region had palaces and gardens made by two rulers of Jodhpur - Bhim Singh and Takhat Singh. These were destroyed to make Kaylana Lake.The lake is situated between igneous rock land formations. It receives its water from Hati Nehar (translation: elephant canal), which is further connected to the Indra Gandhi canal. The natural vegetation here mostly consists of Babool trees (Acacia nilotica), and various migratory birds such as Siberian cranes are seen here in the winter season. The city of Jodhpur and all the surrounding towns and villages depend on Kaylana lake as a source of drinking water.

  • Kaylana lake is a good place to look for in summer season. Actually this lake an example of the artificial lake. But due to the lack of administration here , the area around it is very ugly. There is so much garbage. Botting can also be done in the lake (kaylana). There is a waterfall, water falling in the rainy season is very pleasant.
  • A beautiful place to calm yourself with a view of calm water in centre of wonderful greenery.
  • It's a huge water body, tiny fishes can be found in the water, has boating facilities
  • Nice spot for picnic. Full adventure. Have boating ⛵. Disappointed by Garbage. Over all good place for family and friends
  • nice place for evening walk and hang out.
