Sambhar is a famous place for excursions which is a small city in Jaipur district of Rajasthan State in India. The place is also known as Sambhar Lake Town and also Salt Lake City. Sambhar is located along with Sambhar Lake which is the largest saline lake in India. The lake is widespread with saline wetland with water deepness that is fluctuated according to seasons. The Sambhar lake basin is divided by a long dam made of sandstone.
History : The Sambhar Salt Lake is the biggest inland salt lake in India and even mentioned in the legendary epic, ‘Mahabharata’. History expresses that the lake was a piece of the kingdom of a devil lord known as ‘Brishparva’. As per Hindu custom, the goddess of the Chauhan Rajputs, ‘Shakambari Devi’, changed the town to a plain of precious metals. But people got worried that this would cause fights and that’s why requested to the Goddess to withdraw the aid. Thus the Goddess changed the town of metals into a town with a considerable measure of salt.
Accordingly, the Salt Lake is known to have had its beginnings from here, and there is a temple devoted to Shakambari Devi, that is placed close to the lake. The Salt Lake was claimed by Jaipur and Jodphur lords in turns and was later rented to the British. After independence, The Government of Rajasthan took control over the lake.
