Gadisar Lake is one of the most important tourist attractions
in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan, North India. Its charm lies in the
fact that it was the only source of water for the Jaisalmer
city in the olden days.
A manmade reservoir, the Gadisar Lake in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan
was constructed by Raja Rawal Jaisal, the first ruler of
Jaisalmer. In the later years Maharaja Garisisar Singh rebuilt
and revamped the lake.
Gadisar Lake tours transports you into a different world
altogether. You feel captured in a pleasant time warp.
Artistically carved Chattris, Temples, Shrines and Ghats
surround the banks of Gadisar Lake Jaisalmer. Located towards
the south of Jaisalmer city the entrance to the Gadisar
Lake or Garsisar Tank is through a magnificent and artistically
carved yellow sandstone archway that is known as the Tilon-Ki-Pol.
See rare migratory birds that stop for a drink at the lustrous
Gadisar Lake that reflects the mellow yellow of the picturesque
sandstone banks; enjoy a boat ride on the lake or just sit
on any of the Ghats and see the yellow sandstone banks change
hues of ochre with the setting sun, a delightful panorama
that you would not miss for the world.
The serene Gadisar Lake Lake springs to life during the
annual Gangaur celebrations. The view of the Jaisalmer Fort
from the Gadisar Lake is breathtaking.
