Fateh Sagar Lake, Udaipur Overview

Fateh Sagar Lake is an artificial lake named after Maharana Fateh Singh of Udaipur and Mewar and built to the northwest of Udaipur. Built in 1687, it is the second-largest of the four lakes of Udaipur city. Boating here in the backdrop of Aravali is a must-do activity. Different types of boats are available at the service of the patrons, and you can choose your pick from the same. The sunsets here are incredibly picturesque, and you must visit this destination to witness the same!

One can witness the circumference of the Fateh Sagar Lake by driving on the Moti Magri Road and get a fantastic view of the entire lake. The Fateh Sagar Lake is sprawled over one square kilometre and is divided into three distinct islands. The largest is called Nehru Park and houses a boat-shaped restaurant and a small zoo for kids. It also doubles as a famous picnic spot.

The second island has a public park with water-jet fountains. Finally, the third island comprises the best solar observing site in Asia, the Udaipur Solar Observatory. 

During drought conditions, when the rainfall is scarce, water storage in the lake is insufficient to meet the needs. Cetyl alcohol (hexadecanol) is sprayed over the lake surface to prevent water loss due to evaporation.

History of Fateh Sagar Lake

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.
