Ramgarh lies at a distance of about 35 km from Jaipur and is known for its artificial lake. Spread over an area of 15.5 sq km, this lake, called as Ramgarh lake, was once a major source of water for the city. This man-made water body was created by forming an embankment on verdant hills and now attracts hundreds of tourists every year. The best time to visit it is during monsoons when it is flooded with water and presents a particularly enchanting view. It also appeals to birdwatchers as they can sight many migratory birds here. In the 1982 Asian Games, this lake also hosted an event of rowing.


The region of Ramgarh was once the hunting ground of the Maharaja of Jaipur. Today one can spot wildlife like chital and nilgai here. Thus, it has been pronounced as a wildlife sanctuary by the Government of India. One can also visit the Polo Grounds located here which are considered to be one of the best in the country.
