Built by Maharaja Rawal, this lake served as a water conservation reservoir which helped people to tackle severe water problems in this area. Many temples and shrines are built around the place. One can find many migratory birds in the winter but avoid going there on sunny summer days and in the afternoon because the blunt sunlight will hardly help you to discover the beauty of this place. I went there around 4 pm as I knew the lake would look magical in the sunset colors which would help me to get some nice clicks. There are provisions for boating if and it is quite cheap for a silent float across the lake. I decided to admire the tranquility of the place and spent some lone time imbibing the serenity of the place. The entrance of the gate got its own historical importance and its called Tilon ki pol by the locals. It has a Desert cultural museum beside it which has many ancient cultural artifacts.
We then moved to our second destination which was Gadisar Lake. And the first thing we noticed was that there was no tourist. You will find temples, and Chattris around the banks of this lake. We skipped boating as the day was becoming hot. You can skip this if you are short on time.
A place heavenly for PhotographersGadisar Lake is a place very close to the railway station. Nice lake with sandstone architecture and many street hawkers selling colouful rajasthani art-piece.
A beautiful and serene lake just a few minutes away from the city.
