Kaylana Lake, Jodhpur

(1.2/5 based on 85+ reviews on the web)
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 an artificial lake located 8 km west of Jodhpur. Tourists can enjoy picnic, boating, sunset view and birding at Kaylana  more »
  • Lake is just there not much developed though. Can be just avoided on a sunny day. Can visit if have enough time to kill.  more »
  • Nothing to do nothing to see other than the narrow, winding road where when you meet another vehicle everything becomes complicated frankly uninteresting
