Originally, Maharana Jai Singh constructed the Fateh Sagar Lake in the year 1687. However, about 200 years later, the earthen bund forming the lake got washed away, thereby razing the lake. Subsequently, Maharana Fateh Singh built the Connaught dam in 1889 which gave shape to the present-day lake, and to honour him it was renamed Fateh Sagar Lake.
