Very nice and sufficient source of water

It is self-sufficient source of water for entire fort. The lake is very large and water is much clean though not potable directly. No activities here in this lake. It is adjacent to Raj Darbar.

Scenic view at its best

It's importance is huge, compared to its current state. Though it is good to see the lake, less water as no rain this year. Could be maintained well, only if our tourism dept helps to clean it.
