17th Century

Badi Lake was built in the late 17th century by Maharana Raj Singh I to address water scarcity issues in the region. The lake also has a historic significance as it was used to supply water to the nearby city of Udaipur and its residents.

The best time to visit Badi Lake is during the winter months, from October to March, when the weather is cool and pleasant for outdoor activities. This is also the peak tourist season in Udaipur, and you can enjoy boating on the lake or simply relax by its banks. Monsoon season, from July to September, brings lush greenery to the area, but it may not be the ideal time for outdoor activities due to heavy rainfall.
