Fateh Sagar Lake, Fateh Sagar Lake tours, Visit Fateh Sagar Lake of Rajasthan, Travel to Fateh Sagar Lake, BeachesLocation : Udaipur, Rajasthan
Built In : 1678 AD
Built By : Maharana Jai Singh
Reconstructed By : Maharana Fateh Singh

This is the second most important lake among the three lakes in the city of Udaipur. Dug up in the year 1678 by Maharana Jai Singh, the lake was destroyed by flood waters. Later, it was reconstructed by Maharana Fateh Singh. The lake is linked to the Lake Pichola in the south by a canal via Swaroop Sagar Lake and Rang Sagar Lake.

Though the lake water was originally meant for the irrigation purpose, today it fulfills the need for drinking water as well. Tourists can enjoy a boat ride in the lake with the views of towering hills on three sides. The lake has three prominent islands occupied by a public park, solar observatory and a jet fountain.

Lake Fateh Sagar is a medium-sized perennial storage reservoir constructed in the year 1678 AD, by the rulers of former Mewar State. Although primarily constructed for irrigational purpose, this water body has lately become a second major source of drinking water for the city of Udaipur. The main feeder canal of the lake comes from Madar Tank situated at a higher altitude about 15 km from Udaipur city.

Lake Fateh Sagar is also connected to the adjoining Lake Pichhola through a canal having gates. This (former) lake has somewhat pear-like shape and is surrounded by hills except on its eastern side where a straight masonry dam of about 800-m length is located.

The lake lies on the northwest of main Udaipur city. The runoff emerging from surrounding hillocks drains into this lake. Along the eastern shore line runs a beautiful serpentine road, which has a stone wall on the lake periphery. This lake has got three prominent islands. The largest is developed into a public park.

The second island is situated on the northern side and has an installation of solar observatory. The smallest island on the western side near shore supports a jet fountain. The western bank of lake is occupied by marginal agricultural field. The vegetation cover around the lake is scanty. However, several species of plants are found along the undulating roads and hillocks around this lake.
