About Bal Samand Lake and Garden

Balsamand Lake is located eight kilometers from the city center of Jodhpur on Mandore Road. The lake built by Balak Rao Parihar in 1159 AD was artificially created as a water reservoir for supplying drinking water to the city. Currently, it is one of the favorite picnic spots for people and is surrounded by green lawns and spread out terraced gardens. The once upon a time old royal retreat now has all the modern amenities, but that has not affected the old world charm of the place at all. The Balsamand Lake Palace was built with red stone later by Maharaja Jaswant Singh I of Jodhpur on the banks of the lake. The water body is one kilometer long and fifty meters wide, and the gardens surrounding the heritage structure are home to a variety of flora and fauna. The private estate spread across sixty acres also includes fruit orchards of pomegranate and lime. The crisscross of waterways, an aqueduct and the walkway along the lake provides a pleasurable experience for visitors.
