About Gadisar Lake

A famous tourist attraction in Jaisalmer, Gadsisar Lake is an artificial water reservoir that was the only source of water for this acrid city in old days. Built by Maharaja Gadsi Singh around 1400 A.D, it was originally conceived as a water conservation tank. You witness a lot of shrines and temples flourishing around this lake. As you enter the area, a fascinating gateway built by a royal courtesan named Tillon welcomes you. The lake still retains a lot of rain water and during winters, various migratory birds get attracted towards this place. It is recommended that you carry a pair of binoculars to see exotic bird species here. For photography lovers, there are many photo opportunities at this location. You can enjoy boating at this spot as well. A famous picnic spot, many families are seen relaxing and enjoying by the lake on a regular basis.
