The magnificence of Mount Abu is undoubtedly unparalleled. Blue mountains, a cool atmosphere devoid of the scorching heat of the sun, and the beautiful landscapes- what could be better! And as if this sight was not enough! A beautiful lake rests in solace to complement the enticing beauty of the place- the Nakki Lake. The lake is considered to be very sacred in Hindu legends. It is believed to have been carved out by using nails (called “Nakh” in Hindi). Gods dug out the lake to protect themselves against a vicious demon. Other anecdote narrates that the lake was dug out by a person called Rasiya Balam, upon the announcement of the King that he would make his daughter marry that person who would dig the lake. The lake is one of the most important attractions of Mount Abu and encapsulates the tourists in its serenity and elegance.
The lake is of prime importance with respect to historical point of view as well because Mahatma Gandhi`s ashes were immersed in this lake itself. Serene atmosphere and a sanctifying solace- Nakki Lake presents you the best of moments to cherish for a lifetime !
