The Namal Dam was created in 1913 in order to make up for the shortage of water that could be used for irrigation purposes. The dam was built on the Namal lake. However, now as new irrigation systems have been introduced the usage of the lake as well as the dam has shrunken down to a great extent.

The lake is surrounded by mountains on one side and on the other side there are wide agricultural lands. The lake is famously known for hosting the migration of Siberian birds during the winter season.
