Amer Sagar lake Jaipur

Amer Sagar- heavenly destination to visit during monsoon in Jaipur

In the era of 1727 when the architecture of Pink city Jaipur was getting designed, the King Man Singh decided to build a lake which would resolve the problem of water scarcity which was a big problem for the city during that time. The lake “Amer Sagar” was built in a rectangular shape to store the rainwater, which is hidden and not visible even from Amer Fort or from the town.

The lake “Amer Sagar” was designed in such a way that it was connected with all the step wells, once Sagar gets filled; the excess water automatically gets transferred to other step wells. It was divided into two parts, Upper Sagar and Lower Sagar, in order to check the water level.

Apart from the historical values, it is an amazing and less explored destination of Jaipur and can be considered as a picnic-spot or outing with friends and family. Amazing photos and selfies can make your friends feel jealous.
