Ramgarh Lake

Located around 30 kilometres from Jaipur, Ramgarh Lake was an artificial lake built by the Maharajas of Jaipur as a source of Water Supply. The shape of the lake made it a perfect spot for Boating Races during the 1982 Asian Games and it also remained a picnic spot for the residents of Jaipur. The region surrounding the lake is also a wildlife sanctuary with thriving population of Nilgai, Chitals and Leopards. Sadly, the once majestic lake dried up in 2000 and there is little hope that it will be replenished. Nevertheless, one can still visit the old Jambwa Mata Temple and can explore the ruins of the old Ramgarh Fort.
