Jaisamand Lake, Udaipur

#4 of 13 in Parks in Udaipur
Enjoy views of vast expanse of water surrounded by limestone slabs covered with trees at Jaisamand Lake, the second largest artificial lake in Asia. Built in 1685 by Maharana Jai Singh by making an exquisite marble dam on Gomti River, the stonemasonry of the barrier still stands strong providing excellent observation platforms for panoramic views. Climb a marble elephant for a perfect view or take a boat trip and observe countless cormorants and pelicans on the lake. The area is also a large bird and teak forest sanctuary. Bring your camera along. A visit to Jaisamand Lake represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Udaipur road trip tool to plot your vacation.

  • Beautiful place for a nice picnic or boat ride. The government hasn't maintained the site at all, it can be made a very beautiful site. The boating charges maybe a bit high Rs. 2500 for a boat for an hour. The lake is really beautiful to look at, giving you a feel that you are at sea.
  • Biggest sweet water lake of the largest state of India(Rajasthan), time will escape like sand from your hand and soon you will ran out of time! if you plan to visit here...
  • One of the places you must visit if you are in Udaipur. A little outside of the main city, this is a place with peace, beauty and what not. You will definitely love the whole place. Further, the clean air coming from the lake side touching your face is going to make you feel great.
