Nimaj

 

NIMAJ - The branch of the Rathore clan of Rajputs who founded Jodhpur owns the magnificent Nimaj Palace. The Thakurs of Nimaj were one of the eight 'Sirayats' (highest honour given to feudal lords for their bravery and they formed the permanent advisory senate of privileged Thakurs) of the region of Marwar.
 

In 1708 Nimaj was gifted to Thakur Jagram Singh for his loyalty to Maharaja Ajit Singh of Jodhpur

 

Chatrasagar Lake
Lakes in the desert region are a rarity having their own charm. Chhatra Sagar, 4 kms from the fort is a beautiful water body nestled between two hillocks. Built as a summer retreat, the lush green lawn, flowering trees and clear waters are like an oasis in the otherwise dry region. One can also enjoy the safari to Chattarsagar reservoir, home to ducks, waterfowls, for bird watching and viewing the spectacular sunset.
