Jaisamand Lake

JAISAMAND LAKE

Jaisamand Lake, 48 Km. from Udaipur, is renowned for being the second largest artificial lake in Asia. It covers an area of 36 square kilometres, stretching to a length of 14 kilometres and width of 9 kilometres. The dam constructed on this lake also houses a centrally located Shiva temple. The summer palace of the queen of Udaipur forms a perfect backdrop to the Lake. There are six, intricately carved marble cenotaphs on its embankment. Jaisamand Lake is close to the Jaisamand Sanctuary which serves as a habitat to various types of birds, panthers, leopards, deer, wild boars and crocodiles.
