Next we headed towards the beautiful Ana Sagar Lake which is an artificial lake that spreads far and wide with the town of Ajmer. It was laid out in the twelfth century and is worth a visit to see the line of elegant white-marble pavilions called baradaris, or summer shelters. These were built in the 17th Century by Shah Jahan on the lake’s banks, in a garden by the name of Daulat Bagh. It is one of the best option to spend good evening time by lakeside and one can enjoy boating also.
