It was later reconstructed during the reign of Maharana Fateh Singh (1884-1930 AD). Fateh Sagar Lake is one of the four lakes in Udaipur and it houses three small islands. The largest among them, the beautiful Nehru Island, is popular with tourists; the second island has a public park and a spectacular water-jet fountain; the third island is home to the Udaipur Solar Observatory. All the islands can be visited by motorboats. The calm, blue surface of the lake set against the green mountains make Udaipur India’s ‘second Kashmir’.

One of the memorials built to salute the dauntless Rajputana Hero Maharana Pratap stands stock-still at the Pearl Hill on his own land Mewar. Udaipur was addressed as Mewar in the ancient time, which was a vital part of the Rajput dynasty. Situated on the top of a hill, the location is the best place for enjoying sunset and reciting the tales of Maharana Pratap and his valiant horse Chetak.
