About Anasagar Lake

The beautiful Ana Sagar Lake was founded in Ajmer by King Anaji Chauhan, grandfather of Prithvi Raj Chauhan. It is an artificial lake, which was constructed as a catchment for the dam made across the Luni or Lavanavari River. The lake sprawls over an impressive distance of 13 km and is bordered by several gorgeous pavilions called Baradari, the Daulat Bagh Gardens, and Khobra Behroon Temple. Daulat Bagh was established by the Mughal ruler Jehangir. In the middle of the lake is an island that can be reached by boat. Close to the lake is also a circuit residence that once served as the British Residency. The circuit house is visible on a hilltop. Many edifices in the catchments surrounding the lake have been prohibited to visitors to maintain the exquisite marvel of the lake. Legend has it that once, Muslim saint Moinuddin Chisti and his followers were not allowed to drink water from this lake. He was only granted a cup of water. When the cup was filled, the lake is said to have dried up. People begged the saint to return their water, which he did and thus, the lake was formed again.
