Fateh Sagar Lake
This beautiful lake is surrounded by hills was constructed Maharana Jai Singh in the year 1687. Due to heavy rain the old embankment of the lake was swept away then Maharana Fateh Singh reconstructed this lake in the year 1888 so the name given to this Lake is Fateh Sagar Lake. This is 2800 ft long and its maximum depth is 30ft. Every year a festival named as Hariyali Amavasya Mela organized here in the month of Shrawan. A good road passes by the side of this lake and gives spectacular look with the reflection of side by hills in water. Light shows are arranged in the evening hours.
At the center of the Fateh Sagar Lake an island park is there and it is known as Nehru Park. There is a boat shape café available and near the park. One solar observatory is located in this island. From the bank of the lake boat service is available to visit the park. Charges are Rs 50 per person to visit the park ( both way ) and minimum 6 persons are required to book a full boat. On the way to the center of the Lake the boat will take a turn around the other side of the Lake before reaching the park. |
If you are carrying a camera take good number of photos inside the park preferably with water reflections. You can stand at the boat shaped café and take photos of other areas of the park.
