    The Samber or Sambhar Lake, India's largest inland salt lake, sits 96 km south west of the city of Jaipur (Northwest India) and 64 km north east of Ajmer along National Highway 8 in Rajasthan.

    It is in 60 kms in the west of Jaipur.

    Sambhar is famous for the largest saline lake in India. Due to this fact, Sambhar is also known as Salt Lake City. Literally, Sambhar means salt and the lake has been providing salt for over a thousand years. Various rulers of Jaipur and Jodhpur including Sindhias, Rajputs, Marathas and Mughals have owned the lake in their ruling periods.
