Dhebar Lake, Rajasthan

Dhebar Lake is located in Udaipur, Rajasthan, surrounded by Jaisamand Wildlife sanctuary; therefore Dhebar Lake is also known as Jaisamand Lake in Udaipur. This lake was built in the 17th century and is the second-largest artificial lake present in India. This lake was built by Rana Jai Singh who also built marble dam for Gomati River and named the lake after himself. The Dhebar Lake and the Marble Dam are considered as the 'Heritage Monuments of India'.

Rajasthan is known for heavy draughts and summer, therefore water cultivation has been the best technique for years now. Maharana Jai Singh built this artificial lake by creating a dam that time (17th century) for a small river called 'Gomati'. There are three islands located across the Dhebar Lake, which is inhabited by the Bhil Minas tribe.

On top of the marble dam, 6 cenotaphs (empty tomb monument) are built across along with a temple dedicated to Lord Shiva is built in the centre of the dam. Palaces for king's favourite queens were also built across the Dam. The Jaisamand Wildlife sanctuary consists of various types of flora and fauna including migratory birds from across the nation. Two palaces built by Maharana Jai Singh for the queens are still present near the lake and is considered as the best spot for a great view of the lake. The Dhebar lake is truly a magnificent one.
