The lake was the discovery of ancient Kakatiya rulers. They spotted this excellent place amidst trees and green hills lined up around to hold the rainwater.
The Kakatiya rulers only built a small sluice gate turning the place into a spacious lake which now feeds thousands of acres of agricultural land every year.

Today we visited Laknavala cheruvu or Laknavala Lake a beautiful land-locked water body with lazy, green islands strewn in between. The Laknavaram lake has suspension bridges to one of the islands, and several jetties on the bridge and along the lake end.
