Amer Sagar Lake

Located at a short distance from the Anokhi Museum, Amer Sagar Lake is one of the hidden jewels of Jaipur. Amer Sagar is a manmade lake built during the 17th century by Raja Man Singh of Amer. The lake is divided into two parts, the upper sagar and the lower sagar, of which the lower sagar was only filled once the upper sagar reaches its capacity. The place can be visited during all times of the year and is especially picturesque during the rainy season as one can witness a waterfall during this time. The place is not visited by many locals or tourists and is great for spending some tranquil moments in the forested surroundings. However, one should be careful around the lake, as there is no life guard or authorities for safety.
