Kaylana Lake, Jodhpur

2.7
#4 of 13 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.

  • A man made lake, ablarge distance from the city jodhpur. best to visit in evening. But make a reserve vehicle. Because on returning the public or any other vehicle is not present there to book.
  • Nice place to visit but not clean .
  • A good place for boat riding. One of the attraction of jodhpur. Boat ride can be done at cost of RS. 100 for motor boat per person, or you can hire padal boat for 2 for RS. 150.
  • A very good place for boating as well as picnic .... people can enjoy with there families specially at the rainy season ... the baked corn sold by vendors is awsome in taste
  • Scenic and looks very natural. Nice boat ride
