  • Looks good during season times.. during this summer very low water in dam..
  • One of the biggest dam in Tamilnadu. But doesn’t give the excitement or feel, because of its poor maintenance and hygiene!! If we can visit the dam by early morning we can spot elephants, bisons and even cheetah too😎 Better try to be inside the car and check as anytime they will splash in!!
