MOUNT ABU
The Fount of Indian Culture

NAKKI LAKE

Among others of itinerant interest drawing pious pilgrims and joyous sight-seers; mention must be made of Nakkilake, an enchanting artificial sheet of blue water of idyllic beauty with tiny man-made islets inside, scattered artistically and surrounded by temples and stately palatial architectural beauties. The palm tress jutting above the surface of water against the backdrop of the picturesque hills lend a romantic air to the entire environs. It has a small pier supplying boats and launches for cruising. The spectacle of ethereal charms that seem mellow-as it were, with the setting Sun in the dusk keep the visitor's speechless.

Yet, it has something .more to fascinate and lift them to higher planes. According to the legend, it was dug by gods with their nails-nakh. Hence the name. It appears that once gods were in terrible dread of a cruel demon, who caused the stopping of all sacrificial rites by his overbearing acts. The distressed gods sought the help of Brahma, who counseled them to take refuge at the holy Abu and to screen ,themselves from the diabolical trickeries of their foe. They dug a pit with their nails during their sojourn there. Thus came into existence this lake, which by its multifarious potentialities acquired a name for special attraction and interest to the visitors.
