He decided to convert the same into a big reservoir to fulfill the water needs of the citizens. Initially the reservoir was called Shiv Sagar and the dam was named after the Duke of Cannaunght, which was later, renamed Fateh Sagar.To celebrate the achievement, a moonless night of the rainy season was chosen and since then this day is celebrated as a fair day in Udaipur near Saheliyon ki Bari.
