The Gadsisar rainwater lake is a popular picnic spot, owing to its cool and scenic surroundings. In fact, it is a great vantage point to sight the spectacular Jaisalmer Fort from , when it is bathed in the glorious hues of the golden sun at sunrise. The lake sits just outside the city walls and was once the sole reservoir that controlled the entire supply of water to the arid city of Jasialmer! Located in the southern part of the city, the entrance to the lake is marked by beautifully carved yellow stone archway known as Tilon-ki-Pol. Contrary to the popular belief, it is not an oasis but a water conservation tank made around 1400 AD by the then maharaja of Jaisalmer, Maharwal Gadsi Singh.
