One of the powerful noble of desert kingdom of Marwar (Jodhpur), Thakur Chhatra Singh of Nimaj, decided to dam a seasonal stream flowing through his estate in the late nineteenth century. Thakur Chhatra Singh’s vision was to create a water reservoir which would harvest the monsoon rains.
The reservoir was named Chhatra Sagar in his memory which was completed in 1890. At that time those farmers who were struggling for sustenance on parched lands were invited by Thakur Chhatra Singh to settle around the reservoir.

By early twentieth century Chhatra Sagar had developed into a lush green oasis along-with the entertainment venue of choice. Also a fresh luxury tented camp was created for each party.
The name “Camp Chhatra Sagar” has been recreated by Thakur Chhatra Singh’s great grand children.
This beautiful place captures the essence of both romance and lifestyle. The tents are fabulously designed and outfitted with antiques and furnishings made by local craftspeople. Other than this each tent overlooks the azure blue water of Chhatra sagar reservoir with porches for stargazing and sunset watching.
