About Ana Sagar Lake, Ajmer

The Ana Sagar Lake is in Ajmer, Rajasthan. It is a beautiful artificial lake which was built in the 12th century by the grandfather of Prithviraj Chauhan named Anaji Chauhan and thus the name Ana Sagar Lake. The later expansions include the ‘Baradari’ or pavilions by Shah Jahan and the Daulat Bagh Gardens by Emperor Jehangir. There is a circuit house on a hill near the lake that was a British residency. There is also a beautiful island that is accessible by boats and water scooters from the Daulat Bagh.

Ana Sagar Lake, Ajmer Reviews

  • I feel lots of planning has been done on drawing board. But facts on ground don't tally with drawing board planning. More dedicated efforts are required to maintain the same. Further, volunteers need to educate about the awareness of belonging and cleanliness. Probably, quality of construction has not been supervised on ground. Quality of construction is far from satisfactory. Police need to identify vulnerable area and safeguard possible loot/ eve teasing.

  • The lake is very beautiful and admiring but still some work is needed to make it better. The walking track along the lake was broken and the main entrance to the lake was also not clean The lake had a lot of plastics and other waste. But still the experience of the lake is a nice one

  • It's the 1 of the famous lake. Now it's clean and many Gish to be seen in it. At the same time near the lake there is a beautiful park from where we can see and feel Anasagar Lake

  • It's most beautiful place to visit and pray. One can find peace of mind and a connection with the inner sole.

  • Nice and cool place to visit mainly at the time of sunset. It's too huge and they even offer boat ride. The boat will take you to the mini island located in the mid way of the lake . Not so worthy but good for one time experience. It's really peaceful ro watch the still lake.
