A century-old mosque was discovered in Shakarparian Village.

Recently, during the construction of Lotus Lake, a century-old mosque was discovered in Shakarparian Village. 

Regarding the discovery, Environment Director Irfan Niazi said:

During the construction of Lotus Lake, we found an abandoned mosque while we carried out the cleanliness operation and removed bushes.

It should be noted that the mosque had been a place of worship for the Pairan villagers, who had moved away from their homelands during the development of Islamabad after receiving compensation from the CDA.

CDA is striving to revive tourism in Shakarparian, Islamabad.

After unearthing a national heritage site, the Capital Development Authority (CDA) decided to restore the ancient mosque.

Talking about the restoring initiative, CDA Chairman, Amer Ali Ahmed, stated: 

I have already directed my team to take steps to restore this mosque, which is also our heritage.

CDA is constructing a new Lotus Lake in Shakarparian after previous one demolished.

The Chairman also talked about the construction of Lotus Lake and said:

Lotus Lake is in the final stage of construction and will soon become a new tourist spot.

Ahmed further remarked:

The purpose of this lake and park, besides having a sitting facility and braque pits, is to provide a peaceful environment that is close to nature.

A new Lotus Lake is being created in Shakarparian by CDA to compensate for the old, natural one.

It is pertinent to mention that a natural lotus lake used to exist in the Shakarparian vicinity. However, it was demolished during the construction of a cultural complex between 2004 and 2005. Recently, the CDA decided to construct a new Lotus Lake to improve tourism in the region.
