Jaisamand Lake, Udaipur District

#2 of 6 in Nature in Udaipur District
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 District road trip tool to plot your vacation.
