An artificial lake, which is huge and a birdwatchers paradise. Although no boating activities can be done, this place is more of bird watching and short tour of the lake and going around it.

A calm place to be. Just sit and enjoy the beauty of the place. Nothing much to do. Try to arrange conveyance prior as there are no autos or taxis available nearby. Don't visit after 5pm as it is quite deserted area and no conveyance makes it worst for visiting tourists. But if u have your own conveyance then its... More

One of many lakes built in Pre Independence time to supply water to the city. Good to see its neat and clean ambiance in the midst of stone hillocks just few kilometers away from town

Poorly maintained water reserviour to water Jodhpur. lot of garbage in and around the lake, use to be a good fishing spot. I visited 100's of times since 1990's and only seen it degrading. now its the time for the locals to take some initiatives, but its the good place to do Birding in winters around Jodhpur.

nothing much to see. We went there to have a look at a big lake, but there is nothing like lake. Not worth going.

This place was once used to be a major coveted place of sightseeing but it has lost it charm due to many reasons mainly because of no attention being paid on its maintenance and now also the water level has also fallen to all time low and making the lake dry in most places

It could have been a nice place if it was well maintained. There was trash thrown around the lake and overall, the place is not well kept. When we visited the water level in the lake was not as high as what I have seen in some pictures. There was not really much to do and we did not spend... More
