Rating: 4.3 (based on 1077 google reviews)

Gadisar Lake is among the most striking man-made features of Jaisalmer. It was built by the first emperor of Jaisalmer, Raja Rawal Jaisal and later modified by Maharawal Gadsi Singh in 1359. It is said that this rain-fed lake once provided water for the entire town and was the sole source of water for Jaisalmer. Currently, it receives water from the Indira Gandhi Canal and therefore never dries up.

Situated towards the south of Jaisalmer, the entrance to this beautiful lake is through a grand and magnificently carved archway of yellow sandstone called Tilon-ki-Pol. There are several shrines and small temples located on the banks of this lake. The most renowned one among these temples is that of Lord Krishna which houses a divine idol of Lord Vishnu. It's delightful to watch the different species of migratory birds that come here making it one of the key attractions. A huge domed pavilion at the centre of the lake adds beauty to the already enthralling Gadisar Lake.
