At a distance of 52 km from Jodhpur, Sardar Samand Lake is an artificial lake situated on Jodhpur - Pali road in Rajasthan. It is a bird watchers paradise with different varieties of migratory birds.

This artificial lake as well as the route to the lake is a virtual treat to the nature lovers and photographers. The lake attracts several migratory and local birds such as the yellow-legged green pigeon, Himalayan griffon and Dalmatian pelican, making it a bird watcher's paradise. On the way to the lake, there is a wildlife area, where one can spot animals like Blackbuck, Neelgai and Chinkara.

The summer palace of Maharaja Umaid Singh, Sardar Samand Palace stands on a hill overlooking the Sardar Samand Lake. The palace is a magnificent Art Deco hunting lodge which was built in 1933. It remains the Royal Family's favorite retreat and houses a vast collection of African trophies and original water-colors by Snaffles. The walls of the palace were elaborately carved with vibrantly colored miniature paintings, vividly executed murals and customary motifs. It has now been converted into a luxury hotel, Sardar Samand Lake Resort, managed by the Welcome Heritage Group of Hotels. The Bishnoi villages, a picturesque settlement of the Bishnoi tribal community is also on the way to Sardar Samand Lake.
