Directions to Lake Fateh Sagar
Said to be the pride of the City of Lakes of Udaipur, Fateh Sagar Lake is an artificial lake dug up in 1678, by Maharana jai Singh as a medium-sized perennial storage reservoir. Legends tell that this beautiful lake was destroyed due to heavy rains but Maharana Fateh Singh took it upon himself to bear the pains and expenditure of reconstructing the dam and it was in honor of his contributions to the place that the lake was named after him.
The lake has captivating scenery with hills on three sides and Pratap Memorial on the fourth. Having the shape of a pear with scant vegetation surrounding it, the lake extends to the length of 2.4 km, 1.6 km. in width and deep to the extent of 11.5 meter. During the monsoons, the lake covers the total area of around 1 sq km.
The lake is embellished by three small islands, which can be reached by taking a boat ride in the lake. The largest of the three islands is indeed a lovely garden known as Nehru Park, which has been named after the esteemed first Prime Minister of India, Jawahar Lal Nehru. Its focal point is the boat shaped café, which is a hot favorite amongst the visitors who love to sip coffee as they take in the reigning tranquility and serenity of the place.
The second island is for more scientific-minded people, especially those who love astronomy, as this is the place where a high-resolution solar observatory is strategically installed. It is considered a prime site for obtaining good solar images because of its secluded location with clear skies above and clear waters below it.
The smallest island to the west has proved itself useful by providing a site to support a jet fountain. Well, when you are in the city of lakes, there is nothing more worth then capturing the views of the lake.
Direction: Located north of Lake Pichola & north-west of Udaipur, you can easily reach here taking local buses, Tongas, auto-rickshaws and taxis from the city. .The entire circumference of the lake could be covered by road via Moti Magri Road, Fateh Sagar Drive, Rani Road and the winding road on the eastern side route to get a picturesque view of the lake, and the Aravalli Hills surrounding it.
