Another feather in the cap of the spectacular tourist destinations of Jaisalmer is the Gadsisar Lake. One of the most popular tourist destinations of the region, it sways you away from the hustle and haste of city life and glides you into a soothing environment full of tranquility and solace. Built in around 1400 A.D, the lake was speculated to be an oasis, but it is actually a conservation tank made by the then Maharaja of Jaisalmer, Maharwal Gadsi Singh.
The place also attracts a large number of migratory birds. Being close to Bharatpur, a variety of birds of different species can be viewed here. The lake was once used to regulate the water supply of the entire Jaisalmer city during arid conditions. A number of temples and shrines can be found in the vicinity of the lake as well, which add up to the beauty and fervor of the place.
