  • Vaigai Dam is situated about 68 Kms from Madurai City. It is built across the river Vaigai. View from the top of the dam is awesome. Top of the dam can be reached by climbing about 100 steps. View...

  • Magnificent location. Very good picnic spot for Madurai people. The dam was full and it was overflowing hence it was beautiful to watch and relax. I spent 2hrs with family and friends, took lot many splendid photographs. The best time to visit is when the dam is full else may not be that attractive. Morning visit can be beautiful for photographs.
  • Dam is good to visit. We can have edible snacks in the park itself. Little bit maintenance is needed in the dam park site. As the visitors we should also follows the cleanliness. Have fun time with family
