When it was created in the year 1626, the main reason was to serve agricultural purposes. The State government of Telangana has invested millions on that lake and is still investing in order to promote tourism in the state. The cleanliness level of the lake is a result of the large and crucial steps taken by not only the Municipality and the Government but also by the locals. One such example of the strict measures includes the banning of idol immersion in the lake. It was just the period of expansion of the city of Hyderabad, which marked a dent in the cleanliness level of the lake, but now the lake has regained its original position. This is why the Saroornagar Lake is visited by many tourists all the year round.
