According to the historical information, in 1888, the first lake got washed away due to floods. This is the time when Maharana Fateh Singh came to the rescue and ordered the construction of a dam which is now known as the Connaught Bund or embankment.

In the medieval era, the cost of the renovation was 6 lakh rupees which were incurred by the king. The dam is still considered the second most significant source of drinking water for people in Udaipur.
