It is an artificial lake, perfect as a picnic spot. A person interested in exotic wild life & nature should definitely visit this village.The Bishnoi community inhabits the village. The villagers are staunch worshippers of nature in all its forms, specially the sanctity of plant and animal life. They even pray to the green trees and animals that inhabit their land. In this world of exploitation everywhere, they makeevery effort to conserve the environment. Another fact about the Bishnoi tribal is that they worship Lord Vishnu and are vegetarians.Around the Guda Bishnoi Lake, you can see numerous migratory birds like domicile Cranes etc, blackbucks and chinkaras. This pond is drinking point for antelopes black bucks of near by area. Bishnoi village in Jodhpur, Rajasthan, India is a kind of desert oasis.

So enjoyed this tour. Mr Singh is a knowledgeable gentleman. He took his time. Never rushed us. After the hustle and bustle of other parts of India, I very much enjoyed this tour plus a learned a lot. Well worth my time and money.
