History of Ranisar Padamsar Lake Jodhpur

Jodhpur has been a water-scarce place for years. There is no natural supply of water in Jodhpur. The prime aim of building Ranisar lake was to support water conservation. Conserved water would help the population fulfill their demands. The construction of the lake is dated back to the 15th century. Then, it has been 500 years since the lake made its own resemblance in the city. 

Rao Jodha laid the foundation stone to build Jodhpur city and served as the king for years. His wife, Maharani Jashmade Hadi, ordered the authorities to construct a lake that would solve the water crisis in the city. In earlier time majority of the population lived near the Mehrangarh Fort. So the authorities decided to construct the lake near the fort, and it was named Ranisar lake.  

Later, Rajkumari Padmini came forward and asked the government to build another lake next to the existing Ranisar lake. In the Jodhpur Kingdom, queens were fully authorized to look after the well-being of the city’s population. Later on, these lakes popularly came to know as Ranisar-Padamsar lake. They are a great example of kingdoms’ care and gratitude towards the city’s citizens. Ranisar-Padamsar lake will always glorify the history of Jodhpur city.
