Lake Nawal Sagar is one of the most important tourist attractions of Bundi. Different baoris surrounds this lake in all its sides. There is a Temple of Lord Varuna, i.e the Aryan God of Water, situated at the centre of this lake and it attracts large number of worshippers. The temple is partly underwater and boat service is available to help the followers to reach the temple.
The best aspect of the lake that primarily attracts the tourist is that it reflects a mirror image of the forts and palaces in its water. It was created with the aim of providing water to the various step wells that are there in Bundi to deal with water scarcity. The Nawal Sagar lake can be best viewed from above the Taragarh Fort or by the road lying adjacent to the lake. The lake looks beautiful at night when it is decorated with lights and amazing reflection falls in the water. A daytime visit to the lake can be comfortable as one can enjoy cool weather.
There is a palace near the Lake Nawal Sagar, which is basically a 300 years old historical property which has now been restructured as a hotel.
