During the ancient days, the Gujjarkere lake was linked with the historically renowned Mangala Devi Temple and Bolar Marigudi temple. But the lake has been ruined over time. Hence the development project has been undertaken to reconvert this lake using scientific method into a fresh water zone.

He said, a perfect blueprint for the Gujjarekere lake has been prepared. Appropriate measures would be initiated to avoid sewage water from entering the lake and a beautiful garden would come up around the lake. The encroached area surrounding the lake will be evicted, he said. He wished all success for the project, and said, the project will be completed before coming Dasara festival.
