This natural water reservoir is situated in Chittorgarh fort, just behind a Temple. One can climb down the stairs and touch and drink its waters. It is pure and is fed by a natural stream. The existence of this waterbody help the soldiers of the fort to remain supplied with at least fresh drinking water even during times of attack and siege.

The Gaumukh Reservoir is one of the eighty four water bodies of the fort is filled with water to this day. The nomenclature refers to the cow shaped mouth which serves water to the reservoir. Water incessantly flows from the cow shaped mouth into the kund or the reservoir. The kund is considered to be a natural spring. A Shivling and an icon of Goddess Lakshmi adorn the base of the Gaumukh where the water falls.

Must visit place in Chittorgarh fort.

Situated within the Vijay Stambha complex near Samadheswar temple this is a perineal spring water tank whose source is a mystery. A natural Spring feeds this tank from a carved cow's mouth in the cliff. Lord Shiva Shivling and Goddess Lakshmi statue is placed at the source of the spring .This water tank was the main source of water to Chittor fort during its numerous sieges. It is believed that after touring Holy religious sites in India a Hindu should visit Gaumukh Kund reservoir to complete the cycle of their pilgrimage. Entrance to the temple was crowded and a few pilgrims were feeding the fish which were large in size. Care should be taken while ascending and descending the steps .

This is a large reservoir with a source of floating water. As per the local, the water is hot in winter & cold in summer. But we did not feel it hot. But think about the technology to store the water in such a way. Else there are lots of fishes you can feed them. You will get a bird's view of the city from there also.

Chittorgarh Fort is renowned as the Water Fort. About forty percent of the fort is covered with water bodies in the form of ponds locally known as talabs, wells or, kunds and step wells or baories. Originally eighty four water bodies were built within the seven hundred hectares of the fort area. At present only twenty two water bodies sustain.

Any reservoir on an average will take one up to two meters below surface. Together the water bodies present in the Fort of Chittorgarh can store up to four billion liters of water which is sufficient last for an entire year. It can quench the thirst for fifty thousand lives for a span of four years.

The Gaumukh Reservoir, one of the eighty four water bodies of the fort is filled with water to this day. The nomenclature refers to the cow shaped mouth which serves water to the reservoir. The Gaumukh kund is admired by the visitors as the ‘Tirth Raj’ of Chittorgarh. It is believed that after touring various holy places in India, Hindus need to visit the Gaumukh Kund in Chittorgarh to complete their holy journey.

Water incessantly flows from the cow shaped mouth into the kund or the reservoir. The kund is considered to be a natural spring. The origin of the water is possibly an aquifer. As per hydrogeology, at some places beneath the surface of the earth, layers of permeable rocks, sand and silt can have water reserve. This stored water creeping out into the surface of the earth results in formation of aquifers.

A Shivling and an icon of Goddess Lakshmi adorn the base of the Gaumukh where the water falls. Numerous fishes dwell in this reservoir. Although feeding fishes is considered auspicious in Hinduism, however, fishes in the Gaumukh Reservoir are fed by most of the tourists irrespective of religious bent.

During the three famous sieges when the enemy troops cut down the essential supplies to the Chittorgarh Fort, The Gaumukh Reservoir served water to the inhabitants for days together.

The reservoir can be located near the Samadheswar Temple inside the Chittorgarh Fort. It is advised to be cautious of the steep staircases of the reservoir.

The Gomukh Kund is a reservoir and well inside the fort complex of Chittorgarh. This is probably the most picturesque spots in the whole of the complex, if not the city. It’s also the spot that’s often used for tourism promotional photos for the city. The water is enclosed by a tall cliff on one side and what looks like a low wall on the Chittorgarh city side. There’s even a submerged temple under the water and I climbed down to the reservoir to take a look. The sanctum is submerged up to about a metre from the roof, but it doesn’t stop devotees worshipping. Interesting, but the picturesque photos are probably more important.

During our holidays in Udaipur, we had visited this beautiful natural reservoir located inside Chittorgarh fort . This pond is located right behind the Samadhisvara Temple. The water here is natural mountain water and many locals were bathing inside it. There is a rock formation in the shape of a cow's mouth through which natural water comes out - hence it is popularly called Gaumukh Kund.
