Fateh Sagar Overview

Ranked 2 of 184 sightseeing in Udaipur

Fateh Sagar is an artificial lake that was constructed by Maharana Fateh Singh to the north of Pichola Lake in 1678. Situated to the north-west of Udaipur, the lake is considered to be the pride of this 'City of Lakes'.

One of the four lakes of the city, its blue waters and the backdrop of green has given the nickname of ‘second Kashmir’ to the city. Three small islands are located within the confines of the lake.

Maharana Jai Singh initially constructed the lake, in 1687. However, after a span of 200 years, the earthen bund, which formed the lake, was washed away during floods. Thereafter, Maharana Fateh Singh, who was the ruler of the former Mewar State, reconstructed the lake in 1888.

The foundation of the present day lake was laid by the Duke of Connaught, the third son of Queen Victoria. The lake got its present name after Maharana Fateh Singh. Through means of a water canal, the lake is linked to the Rang Sagar Lake and Pichola Lake. On the banks of the lake, the Ram Pratap Palace is located.

The source of water of the lake is the run-off emerging from surrounding hills. The lake is also fed by three inlet channels, along with an overflow section on the eastern side in the Masonry Dam. This pear-shaped lake is surrounded by the Aravalli Hills on three sides, with a straight gravity stone masonry dam on the eastern side.

Local buses, tongas (horse driven two wheelers), auto-rickshaws and taxis can be availed to reach the lake.

Fabulous Fateh Sagar

It gave me slight look of Mini Mumbai While walking on the footpath of Fateh Sagar, It was amazing experience to walk on side of Fateh Sagar, In the evening this place becomes bit crowdy but more fascinating, the lighting and street food grab your attention Which I liked the most Was "COLD COFEE" and when the cloud gets more darker in evening, you get more fascinated with this place, I am telling you as I did not want to return from there till late night The pride of the City of Lakes, this lake was constructed towards the north of Lake Pichola. Localities told me It was built by Maharana Jai Singh but it got the name of Fateh Singh who rebuilt its dam. Fateh Sagar, the second of Places in Udaipurs four man-made lakes. The properties around the lake is very picturesque.

Fateh

This is a very beautiful lake and the main catch of the lake is a garden which is at the center of the lake. Although government boats are available to visit there, gives you a soothing, relaxing and refreshing mood.

A must for all water lovers

Fatehsagar lake , its an artificial lake with three small islands; the largest of these is the Nehru Park , which is a popular tourist attraction, the second island houses a public park with an impressive water-jet fountain and the third island is the address for the Udaipur Solar Observatory (USO). The Nehru park is accessible by inboard motor boats. Time to visit this place is from 8:00 am till 4:30 pm, one can also have a great options to choose from if felt hungry, as there is a long row of cafes and restaurants on the road opposite to this lake.

A Lake With Beautiful Surrounding And Great Historical Back-Ground

Fateh Sagar Lake is a very famous lake, presenting beautiful views on its beautiful banks and pavilions which are constructed there. The most appreciated lake about which I heard very much, how a place can fortified the scene and the truth was there when I was walking around the lake. Where the view of the sun setting with the presence of hundreds of tourists, mostly locals who were visiting without any failure to enjoy the beautiful lake shore. A lake with beautiful surroundings and great historical back-ground.It is named after the name of Maharana Fateh Singh, who built this Lake in 1889, it has three small Islands and it is situated on the way to Pearl Hill. Any stress or tense feelings will surely meltdown at the bank of this beautiful lake.
