Gaumukh Reservoir is one of the most important water tanks in the Chittorgarh Fort. The interesting fact is that water from a natural spring constantly flows from the “cow mouth” into the reservoir. A shiva-linga and an icon of Goddess Lakshmi adorn the base of the Gaumukh where the water falls. A popular activity indulged in by the visitors to the reservoir is the feeding of the fishes that dwell there. It is located close to the temple and provides a perfect complement to the holy reservoir. One can climb down the stairs and touch and drink the waters. Gaumukh Reservoir is considered to be a sacred site and the Fort tour is incomplete without a visit to this reservoir.

The Gomukh Kund is a reservoir and well inside the fort complex of Chittorgarh. This is probably the most picturesque spots in the whole of the complex, if not the city. It’s also the spot that’s often used for tourism promotional photos for the city. The water is enclosed by a tall cliff on one side and what looks like a low wall on the Chittorgarh city side. There’s even a submerged temple under the water and I climbed down to the reservoir to take a look. The sanctum is submerged up to about a metre from the roof, but it doesn’t stop devotees worshipping. Interesting, but the picturesque photos are probably more important.

I visited Gaumukh Kund in the Fort Chittaurgarh in the mid of April 2016 with a business colleague while returning to Udaipur from a colleague's wedding in Asind.

The reservoir is the largest water body in the Fort Chittaurgarh. The reservoir has served as the main water supplying unit to the kingdom of Chittaurgarh.

The reservoir has an ancient Shiv Temple located just next to it.

Currently, reservoir is used to water the gardens and fields of the Fort premises.

This spot within the Vijay Stambha premises..and most important part of Chittaurgarh fort..
A left turn from Vijay stambha will take you to this spot..it is used as reservoir and bath place of Royal family..1 temple aside this tank and other one is partly submerged within it..also a place for pilgrims..

Chittorgarh Fort is renowned as the Water Fort. About forty percent of the fort is covered with water bodies in the form of ponds locally known as talabs, wells or, kunds and step wells or baories. Originally eighty four water bodies were built within the seven hundred hectares of the fort area. At present only twenty two water bodies sustain.

Any reservoir on an average will take one up to two meters below surface. Together the water bodies present in the Fort of Chittorgarh can store up to four billion liters of water which is sufficient last for an entire year. It can quench the thirst for fifty thousand lives for a span of four years.

The Gaumukh Reservoir, one of the eighty four water bodies of the fort is filled with water to this day. The nomenclature refers to the cow shaped mouth which serves water to the reservoir. The Gaumukh kund is admired by the visitors as the ‘Tirth Raj’ of Chittorgarh. It is believed that after touring various holy places in India, Hindus need to visit the Gaumukh Kund in Chittorgarh to complete their holy journey.

Water incessantly flows from the cow shaped mouth into the kund or the reservoir. The kund is considered to be a natural spring. The origin of the water is possibly an aquifer. As per hydrogeology, at some places beneath the surface of the earth, layers of permeable rocks, sand and silt can have water reserve. This stored water creeping out into the surface of the earth results in formation of aquifers.

A Shivling and an icon of Goddess Lakshmi adorn the base of the Gaumukh where the water falls. Numerous fishes dwell in this reservoir. Although feeding fishes is considered auspicious in Hinduism, however, fishes in the Gaumukh Reservoir are fed by most of the tourists irrespective of religious bent.

During the three famous sieges when the enemy troops cut down the essential supplies to the Chittorgarh Fort, The Gaumukh Reservoir served water to the inhabitants for days together.

The reservoir can be located near the Samadheswar Temple inside the Chittorgarh Fort. It is advised to be cautious of the steep staircases of the reservoir.

Again this beautiful photo spot has litter all over and plastics are floating in this reservoir. Those with health conditions may not get down, because climbing up may be difficult.

This is a queen pond. A tunnel from queen palace connects to this pond (as what heard from people there). One can still see water inside it and it has walls around it. One has to climb down stairs to reach to this place.
