Ideal place to relax during sun set

It's a big lake in this city, but as I got a very in-corporative taxi driver. He gave me no ideas of any activities inside the lake like boating and all. And moreover he took me to this place at heavy sun shine too ..But I recommend to visit the place during sun set. Ideal place to relax ..

Serene place to start your day

I went to Ana Sagar lake in the morning. The heavy breeze was blowing and there were waves in the water. It was a pleasant Summer morning and my waking up early was worthwhile. There were people of age groups doing morning walks and chanting sermons. One old man was wishing good morning to every walker and visitor. The whole atmosphere was surreal. I could spot some boats and presumed that boating would have been fixture in the evenings for visitors.

Nice to explore

This is the one of the best place in Ajmer to explore and the island in the middle is increases its attractions. I am really looking for a while back and relax in the morning and evening or next day at there. There is a big problem of hygiene and maintenance.

Must maintain the cleanliness

This lake paints a picture of neglect, the wonderful blue water of Anna Sagar and beautiful Baradari made for visitors is the highlight of this lake. Cleanliness is a major issue, I hope the Govt. and people visiting lake will keep it clean as this lake is one the beautiful lakes we have in India.
