Fateh Sagar Lake

Home to must-visit islands

Fateh Sagar Lake is a charming lake surrounded by hills and woods. This artificial lake was constructed by Maharana Jai Singh in 1678 AD and it lies north of Lake Pichola. It was later reconstructed during the reign of Maharana Fateh Singh (1884-1930 AD) after the earthen bund (dam) was washed away in floods. The Maharana built Connaught Dam to commemorate the visit of the Duke of Connaught and the lake was renamed Fateh Sagar Lake. Fateh Sagar Lake is one of the four lakes in Udaipur and it houses three small islands. The largest among them, the beautiful Nehru Island, is popular with tourists; the second island has a public park and a spectacular water-jet fountain; the third island is home to the Udaipur Solar Observatory. All the islands can be visited by motorboats. The calm, blue surface of the lake set against the green mountains make Udaipur India’s ‘second Kashmir’.

How to reach here
