The name of the lake which I called the ancient in this photograph is the “Nakki Lake”. It is situated in the famous hill station of Mount Abu in Rajasthan. I captured this photo at Nakki lake in the evening. The lake is about a half-mile in length and is about a quarter of a mile in width and twenty to thirty in deep. It is also known as a large man-made lake that is situated at the height of 11,000 meters (36090 Feet) in India.
The interesting thing about the name of it is that it was dug by the Nails (Nakh).
One of them is that It was dug by the gods to live in, for protection against the Bashkali demon.
The second story is of Rasiya Balam (Click to Know more about Rasiya Balam), who dug the lake. The king said that whoever will dig the lake within one night. I will marry my daughter to him. But the later king’s wife refused and he couldn’t marry the king’s daughter. Rasiya Balam and Kunwari Kanya (the daughter of the king)’s temple is behind the Dilwara Jain temple.
After boating at Nakki Lake, we enjoyed the evening and also enjoyed the ice cream. I also shared one post named “Sweet Chocolate Chips Ice Cream Cone (Click to See)“.
