A lake in the heart of Bundi city that adds to the beauty of the landscape when viewed from Taragarh Fort. The lake is dedicated to Lord Varuna (Hindu Water God). There is a temple in the middle of the lake that was half submerged when we visited. We had a mesmerising view of the lake from the Fort. Near the lake, there is also a palace where the kings of Bundi shifted from the main palace after 1947 when Indian got free (Probably, it was difficult to maintain such a big palace in the Fort with all the powers to collect and raise revenue were gone so the kings decided to shift to a smaller palace). Nawal Sagar is surely a gem in the beauty of Bundi and a treat to your eyes.

This little presumably man-made lake was on the approach to our hotel. It was very dirty and full of rubbish. Shame on the town administration for letting it be so unclean. Take pride in your city. It must have been a lovely place in years gone by. There are fantastic views of the palace and fort from the lake's roadside.

This lake is in the middle of the old city and is the perfect foreground for a picture of the palace. A great place to relax in Bundi during the day. Some green grass a cheap and well served meals. We ate there everyday...

Make sure you enjoy this Kodak moment by asking your driver to stop on the (wide) roadside to snap the best view of Bundi. The lake itself has seen better days, though it was being cleaned up when we visited - it's the view - geddit?!

It doesn't take much mental effort to visualize just how remarkable Nawal Sagar must have looked a couple centuries ago in the heyday of the Maharajahs. The architecture of the palaces, royal residences and temples is simply remarkable and to see these buildings in full use with all of the colourful gardens would have been amazing. Much of the building material around Nawal Sagar is marble and to see that all clean and polished, with multi-coloured flags and pennants would have been an unforgettable sight.
Unfortunately, now the colour comes from the garbage floating in the water around the edges of Nawal Sagar. People still come to walk around the lake, visit with friends and take photos of near and dear ones, but they just overlook all of the dirt and grime. Nobody seems to have a sense of pride in this city. If you catch the breeze coming across the water the wrong way, instead of being a soft beautiful air, it almost makes you sick from so much pollution.
Sites like Nawal Sagar are what makes India such a interesting place to visit, a once in a lifetime experience... you just have to see them to make them "part of the whole"...but after seeing how run down and totally abandoned they have become, it truly becomes a "once in a lifetime" experience... I don't want to come back
