Laxman Sagar Resort

Laxman Sagar Resort - Revathi Kamath

The Lakshmansagar Resort, located at the foot of the Aravalli range, is built around the Lakshmansagar Lake on the site of a 19th century hunting lodge of the Thakur of Raipur. The original structures consisted of a colonnaded veranda and a ‘haveli’. The colonnade, which was used as the ‘mardana’, overlooks the plains on one side and the lake on the other while the three-storey ‘haveli’ enclosing a courtyard was used as the ‘zanana’.
