Doodh Talai Lake

Doodh Talai Lake or Dudh Talai lake, is a small pond located adjacent to the Lake Pichola, near Shiva Niwas Palace (residence of Maharana Fateh Singh), in the heart of Udaipur, Rajasthan.


The first thing which comes in curious mind about the lake is how it got its name? People of this city have subjected many stories behind the name, but according to old citizens, Doodh Talai fulfilled the basic needs of cows which were present government chow shelters, that carry through the requirement of milk in heritage kitchen. So because of this lake got its name Dudh Talai.


One can visit Doodh Talai from anywhere in the city by tonga (horse-drawn carriage), auto-rickshaws, or by hiring a taxi.
