Situated to the north-west of Udaipur, the lake is considered to be the pride of this City of Lakes.One of the four lakes of the city, its blue waters and the backdrop of green has given the nickname ofsecond Kashmir to the city. Three small islands are located within the confines of the lake.Maharana Jai Singh initially constructed the lake, in 1687. However, after a span of 200 years, the earthen bund, which formed the lake, was washed away during floods. Thereafter, Maharana Fateh Singh, who was the ruler of the former Mewar State, reconstructed the lake in 1888.The foundation of the present day lake was laid by the Duke of Connaught, the third son of Queen Victoria. The lake got its present name after Maharana Fateh Singh. Through means of a water canal, the lake is linked to the Rang Sagar Lake and Pichola Lake. On the banks of the lake, the Ram Pratap Palace is located.The source of water of the lake is the run-off emerging from surrounding hills. The lake is also fed by three inlet channels, along with an overflow section on the eastern side in the Masonry Dam. This pear-shaped lake is surrounded by the Aravalli Hills on three sides, with a straight gravity stone masonry dam on the eastern side.Local buses, tongas (horse driven two wheelers), auto-rickshaws and taxis can be availed to reach the lake.
