Jaisamand Lake, located in a stunning site 48 km southeast of Udaipur is one of the largest artificial lakes in Asia.
Jaisamand Lake was built by Maharaja Jai Singh in the 17th century and created by damming Gomti River; today it measures 14 km long and 9km wide. There are beautiful chatries (cenotaphs) around this embankment, each with an elephant in front. The summer palaces of the Udaipur Maharanis are also here. The lake features a variety of birdlife and the nearby Jaisamand Sanctuary is home of panthers, leopards, deer, wild boars and crocodiles. The forests used to be a favorite hunting ground for the former rulers of Mewar, and elaborate hunting expeditions would frequently take place here.
