As far as wildlife is concerned, the Indian peninsula is a continent in itself where the sheer diversity of the wildlife astounds you with more than 350 species of mammals and 1200 avifauna species in the country.
The people want to do only one thing in the cities during the summers – they want to get away from it. They want a cool getaway in India itself where they can have some respite from the scorching heat of the plains.
The Ana Sagar Lake, one of the most beautiful lakes of Rajasthan, is located a few kilometers north of the city of Ajmer. As far back as the 12 Century a dam was constructed on Luni River, which flows through Ajmer and this resulted in the formation of Ana Sagar Lake. The lake is named after the ruler Anaji Chauhan, who ruled the region of Ajmer during that time.
The Mughal emperor Jehangir also contributed to the beauty of the Ana Sagar Lake, by building the Daulat Bagh. A marble pavilion called the ‘Baradari’ was later built by Shah Jahan.
