Located in the north of Lake Pichola, Fateh Sagar Lake lies just besides the entrance to Moti Magri Hill. Built in 1678 by Maharana Jai Singh, Fateh Sagar Lake got its name from Maharana Fateh Singh, who later made additions to it. Talking about the statistics of Fateh Sagar, the lake extends to the length of 2.4 km, 1.6 km. in width and deep to the extent of 11.5 meter. Fateh Sagar Lake is well-planned with three intake channels and an overflow channel that is usually brought into play in the rainy season. Fateh Sagar Lake is embellished by three small islands, which can be reached by taking a boat ride in the lake. The largest island of the lake is developed into a park by the name of Nehru Park. The garden comprises a boat-shaped restaurant and a small zoo for children. This island park is the favorite picnic spot of Udaipur dwellers. The second island is converted into a public park with brilliant water-jet fountains by the Government of Rajasthan. The third island addresses Udaipur Solar Observatory, which is the best solar observing site in Asia. Fateh Sagar Lake is quiet place where people usually come for relaxation and to lighten up amidst the serene waters of the lake. From the bottom of Moti Magri Hill, you can hire pedal boats or motor boats as per your convenience to enjoy a boat ride in the lake. « less

This is bigger than Lake Pichola. If you have less time, then go for boat ride in Pichola rather than Fatehsagar lake. This Lake is good for strolling along the lake side than a boat ride.

First of all dont waste your time to go to island situated in the middle of the lack. Nothing there, seriously nothing. Other than that everything is beautiful. Its very peaceful, one can seat around here for hours and immerse in the beauty of it.

The dam flow right at the entrance and the high water level that will make you feel you're just inside the water at the brim of the wall is a thrilling experience.Beautiful landscape and a good place for some pretty pictures!

This one is less commercialized compared to Picchola and seems beautiful from facing hotels like Hilltop Palace or Lalit.

After monsoons the lake was full to the brim and the water was almost on the road. It was so breezy. Boat ride in a motor boat is a must. Also u can have tea in the kulhars opposite the boating area.

Best time to visit is early morning or late evening 4:30-5pm for pleasant weather and boat ride(rs.90/-). Water level was high when we visited and thus it was worthwhile. You can cover it in 45 mins.

This is cleaner & more peaceful than lake Pichola. You can choose to explore this in the evening or early in the morning. There are also various boat rides which take you out into the lake.
