Gadisar Lake

This tank, south of the city walls, once held the town water supply, and befitting its importance in providing precious water to the inhabitants of this arid city, it is surrounded by small temples and shrines. The beautiful yellow sandstone gateway arching across the road down to the tank is the Tilon-ki-Pol, built by a famous courtesan, Telia. When she offered to pay to have this gateway constructed, the Maharaja refused to walk under it as he felt that this would be beneath his dignity. While he was away, she built the gate, shrewdly adding a Krishna temple on top so that king could not tear it down.
