History of Lake Sairan.

Sairan Dam was built in 1971. The lake was landscaped, there were beautiful beaches and boat stations, and it was a recreation area for local residents. Over time, the area around the lake was clogged and repeatedly cleaned due to repeated water pollution.
In 2006, a 50-meter fountain was installed in the middle of the lake to give an impetus to the now beloved lake. Fontam worked only a year and no longer works.
