The Sambhar Salt Lake, India's largest inland salt lake, a bowl shape lake is in Jaipur.
It is not part of the Ganga river basin area and is geographically a separate land locked river basin.
The lake is actually an extensive saline wetland, with water depths fluctuating from as few as 60 centimetres (24 in) during the dry season to about 3 meters (10 ft) after the monsoon season.
The circumference of the lake is 96 km, surrounded on all sides by the Aravali hills.
It is India's largest saline lake and is the source of most of Rajasthan's salt production.
Sambhar has been designated as a Ramsar site (recognized wetland of international importance) because the wetland is a key wintering area for tens of thousands of flamingos and other birds that migrate from northern Asia.
The specialized algae and bacteria growing in the lake provide striking water colours and support the lake ecology that, in turn, sustains the migrating waterfowl.
There is other wildlife in the nearby forests, where Nilgai move freely along with deer and foxes.
