Kaylana Lake

Located on the outskirts of Jodhpur, the picturesque Kaylana Lake is a popular sightseeing spot that offers a vista of stark waters and spectacular skies. A large man-made lake, spread over an area of 84 sq km, it offers boating facilities that are an ideal way to explore the surrounding beauty. The lake is enclosed by a garden known as Pratap Sagar, which becomes a bird watchers paradise during sunsets. In winter, Siberian cranes migrate here in large flocks, and offer visitors a chance to observe them in their natural habitat. Igneous rock formations flank the shores of Kaylana, creating a panoramic, if somewhat stark picture, interspersed by babool trees.

Kaylana Lake was built in 1872 by Pratap Singh and was once surrounded by palaces and gardens made by two rulers of Jodhpur – Bhim Singh and Takhat Singh, who ruled Jodhpur during the 19th century.
