Fateh Sagar Lake

Pear-shaped and encircled by green hills of the Aravalli range, the Fateh Sagar Lake is one of the most serene spots in Udaipur. Located just next to the Moti Magri hill, the lake was built in 1678 by Maharana Jai Singh. It was named after Maharana Fateh Singh, who extended it later. Fateh Sagar, which is the second largest artificial lake in Udaipur after Jaisamand, is 2.4 km long, 1.6 km wide and 11.5 m deep. It is a well-planned artificial lake with three intake channels and an overflow channel that help regulate water flow during monsoon.

Three small islands add to the beauty of the lake. The largest island of the lake is Nehru Park and comprises a restaurant and a small zoo. The state government has converted the second island into a public park and the third island has a solar observing site, one of the most elaborate in Asia, called the Udaipur Solar Observatory. From the bottom of Moti Magri Hill, you can hire pedal boats or motor boats to enjoy the scenery.
