Chandlai lake

Chandlai lake

Chandlai lake was constructed in 1872. The lake is 10ft deep and covers the area of 195Ha. It is around 30 KM from Jaipur situated near Shivdaspura or Chandlai Village on Tonk Road, Rajasthan.

It is paradise for the bird lovers, according to the environment department lake attracts over 10,000 local and migratory birds. List of Some of the birds which you can spot here are Little Cormorant, Green Sandpiper, Common Moorhen, Purple Moorhen, Common Coot, Little Grebe, Greater Flamingo, Spot-Billed Duck, Eurasian Wigeon, Purple Heron, Grey Heron, Spotted Red Shank, Common Red Shank, White Wagtail, Little Ringed Plover, Ruddy Shelduck, Black-Winged Stilt, Brown Capped Night Heron, Common Teal, Ruff, Pallas’s Gull, Pied Avochet and so on. . . . . .  I love Photography but I am not a bird Photographer so I present to you some Goats. . .  :)

Sad thing is that the natural source of its water which use to fill it in rainy season has been blocked by the encroachment and now the main source is the Amanishah Nallah or the polluted (untreated industrial and wastewater) Dravyawati River which are now became its main feeder.
