NEHRU GARDEN AND SANJAY PARK FATEHSAGAR

Developed on an island at the height of 1960 feet from main sea level and covering four and a half acres is Nehru Garden in the middle of Fatehsagar. The construction of a periphery wall was started as a famine relief work in 1937. But the work was abandoned when famine conditions were over.

Later on, the state govt. decided to make it a beautiful park and named it Nehru Garden in the memory of Prime Minister Jawahar Lal Nehru. It was inaugurated by Hukam Singh erstwhile Governor of Rajasthan, on 14th November, 1967.

The park that is rectangular in shape with circular ends is crowned with Chhatries at each corner, a Baradari on the northern end and a suite on northern side. It is dotted with lush green lawns studded with arrays of flowers in multitude of enchanting colors and enlivened by play of colorful fountains of different geometric designs. Lit at night, its reflections in the tranquil water of the lake makes it a magical land afloat on the water.

Four domes and more fountains were built in 1971. A 375 feet RCC bridge links the garden to the 80 seater boat shaped café and provides a delightful walk over the water. A gigantic jet fountain in the lake spouts up the colorful sprays of water to a dizzy height of 150 feet. Boats can also be seen moving hither and thither. Boat service is also available.

Located on Rani Road on the bank of Fatehsagar is Sanjay Park. The eye-pleasing colorful flowers, white marble fountains and beautiful lighting attract a lot of visitors.
