Then, he commanded a bird's-eye view of the bank of Lake Samji. The area of the lake has not only turned into a huge outdoor museum but its appearance has changed into an excellent and beautiful cultural recreation ground, he noted, adding that today witnessed the realization of the desire expressed by the President to see a modern rest house for people built there after the liberation of the country when he reached the bank of the lake during the anti-Japanese armed struggle.
