Rajsamand Lake was built by Maharana Raj Singh in 1660.The river Gomti is the main supplier of water to Rajsamand Lake. This was created by building an impressive dam in the 17th century. On the southern end of the lake, the huge embankment is composed of white marble. It has marble terraces and stone steps that touch the waters of the lake. There are five toranas where Maharana Raj Singh and his descendants organized the annual event of Tuladan. This process of alms-giving was followed by Maharaja Raj Singh and his descendants.Also on the embankment of the lake are nine pavilions or 'nauchowki', which were constructed by Maharana Raj Singh. These beautifully carved pavilions are festooned with pictures of the sun, chariots, gods, birds and detailed carvings. The history of Mewar is inscribed in 1017 stanzas, on 27 marble slabs, that are called the Raj Prasasti. It has been acclaimed as one of the longest etchings in India.Rajsamand Lake was made the seaplane base of Imperial Airways during World War II, for over six years.
