One of the oldest man-made lakes in Asia, the Ana Sagar Lake is sprawled over an area of 2 sq km. Tourists can indulge in various recreational activities like boating and camel rides during a visit to Ana Sagar. The best time to visit the lake is during the winter season when the lake serves as a home for migratory birds like pelicans, coots and ducks from Siberia and other parts of the world. Tourists can also visit Daulat Bagh, which is noted for its attractive marble pavilions known as baradari, which were constructed by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in 1637. In close proximity lies the Anasagar Chaupati, which is a bustling street food market set up on the periphery of the lake. The lake is visited by a large number of locals and tourists during the evening as it offers amazing views of the sunset. The lake was built by Anaji Chauhan, the grandfather of Prithviraj Chauhan during 1135 AD to 1150 AD.
