When it comes to Jaipur, you will say Hawa Mahal, Amber Fort, Nahargarh, but this time, we want you to try something diverse; something not so popular but beautiful.
The lakes of the city further enhance the beauty of Jaipur and make it the “paradise” of the desert. A day trip to these places will leave you invigorated and re-energized.
So go explore this side of Jaipur picking your favorite from our list of Lakes in and around Jaipur.
Jaipur is blessed with an artificial lake of Ramgarh. Among the quaint scenery of Ramgarh, the lake attracts tourists from all over the world which is at a stone’s throw distance of twenty-five kilometers from Jaipur.
The lake has provision for boating that makes it a favorite picnic spot for the tourists. The temple of “Jamwa Mata” and the remnants of the historical fort are some of the added fascinations of the place with well-equipped library and a museum that provides insight into the rich cultural heritage of the ancient times.
A place where skylines stretch to enormity, where water and sky combine in a beam of thin blue and where the rundown call of the curlew may be the main voice you listen. Sambhar Lake in Rajasthan is India’s biggest saline,that is interesting, yet pleasant town and is also turning into a well-known tourist spot. For those who want to feel relived and are waiting for a unique outside experience, Sambhar provides for you the chance to appreciate the stunning sight of the wild life haven and one can respect the distinguished standpoint of the Salt Lake.
Located on the south side of the city of Amer, close to Amber fort. There is a garden in the center of Maota Lake namely Kesar Kyari Bagh with star shaped flowerbeds and saffron flowers. The lake provides a placid setting from which to look up at Amer Fort on the hillside:reflected on the water’s surface. A perfect gateway for this pleasing monsoon season.
One of the best kept secrets of the city of Amer is a 17th century lake ‘Sagar’, which was the initial source of water for the adjoining forts of Amer and Jaigarh as well as the city of Amer and its people. Skidded away beyond Kheri Gate & the Anokhi Museum, the lake can be reached by car and then one can walk around its borderline, which is divided into two parts- the Upper Sagar and the Lower Sagar. If you are visiting Amer or the Anokhi Museum in the evening, do stop by. The sunset turns the mud-plastered walls of Amer into a golden warren waiting to be explored.
Man Sagar Lake
Lake Man Sagar is an artificial lake to the north of Jaipur in which the stunning Jal Mahal Palace stands.
Popular with both Jaipur’s residents and visitors as the cooling waters and wildlife are a refreshing break from the pollution and dust of the city. Most travellers’ experience of Lake Man Sagar is the brief stop to photograph the Jal Mahal but the cooling waters of the lake can spend a rewarding afternoon.
Everybody likes birds but there are a few people who love them. If you’re one of those few, Chandlai Lake is one spot you must visit. You can spend a good half a day for birding if you are in Jaipur. This place located approximately 30KM from Jaipur city on Tonk Road.
It is a vast lake, which appeals many migratory birds apart from few resident ones.
I am all set to leave for each of these above, this Monsoon!!
