Kaylana Lake is one of the most popular places to visit in Jodhpur, located nearly 8 km from the main city. The place is known for its natural scenery surrounded by rocks and water. The water in the lake flows down from an elephant canal called Hathi Nehar. This canal is further connected to the Indira Gandhi Canal.

The lake also surrounds Babool trees adding to the beauty of the place. During the winter season, you can get to see Siberian cranes and other migratory birds. This makes the lake a must-visit place for all bird and nature lovers. There is a temple on the hills belonging to Lord Shiva. You can enjoy the trekking experience by visiting the temple.


Kaylana Lake is an artificial lake that was built in 1872. Pratap Singh laid the foundation of the lake on a surface area of 84 sq km. Before the lake, this place had palaces and gardens, which Bhim Singh and Takhat Singh built. At a time, both of them were the rules of Jodhpur. 

Pratap Singh wanted to create a source of drinking water for nearby villages and chose to destroy the gardens and palaces to build the lake. Takhat Sagar and Umaid Sagar are the primary outflows of Kaylana Lake through which the water flows to nearby villages and towns. Kaylana Lake Jodhpur is approximately 40 to 50 ft deep.
