The Sahasralinga Talav, a reservoir, which literally means 'the lake of a thousand lingas' was built in the year 1084 by Siddhraj Jaysinh over a lake which is known to be Durlabh Sarovar. The lake is located to the north of Rani ki Vav at Patan in the state of Gujarat. The lake was attacked three times and yet has managed to leave some of its parts intact.

The reservoir was built to channel water from the River Saraswati. It has an inbuilt natural filtration. The platform which held the pillars still gives us a virtual view of the complete lake. The reservoir has sculptures many deities in it.
