It is one of the traditional lakes of Feni. Folklore has it that an influential king of the Maharaja of Tripura dug this lake about five to seven hundred years ago with the intention of eradicating the blindness of his daughter. In the local language, Kanya is called Ji. That is why the lake is named Rajajhi Dighi.
The administrative offices built on the banks of this lake about one and a half years ago were shifted to another place after Feni became a district in 1984. However, some buildings are now abandoned.
When the Feni subdivision was established in 1855, its headquarters was built on the banks of this lake. Now Feni Sadar Thana, Feni Court Mosque, Officers Club, Feni Reports Club, National Park, and National Heart Foundation have been formed on the banks of the lake. This lake contains the centuries-old history and tradition of Feni.
The clear water of the lake and the surrounding pure beauty have been maintained for centuries. The city dwellers rushed to the bank of the lake to breathe in the fresh air out of the concrete rubbish. Anagona of people of all ages can be seen here.
