My family and I spent an hour here in the Dam and the park. We didn't have much time to see the entire park, but just went up to view the dam, watched the boating there and returned. You have to pay for vehicle parking, entrance, both still and video cameras but a very minimal charge. The park was beautiful... More

We have visited here when we went to this route to see all other places. Mind your steps in rainy season to avoid any unwanted situation.

This dam offers a great view of the Aliyar reservoir and its surroundings. But it is very poorly maintained. The water inside the park stinks very badly (as bad as the koovam river) and to add to the woes, the public dirty the park by leaving the leftover foods, snacks etc within the park premises. For the boating, there was... More

The dam has very vast area with a guest house. The long steps take us to the dam. The dam is very well cleaned and protected. But to play in water is very danger.

Very attractive and calm area. Good for Nature lovers. Around the dam Sea foods are also available and not very good. No permission to roam entire dam areas.

Be there during rainy and winter seasons and you will enjoy the stunning beauty of the hills behind. Be there in summer and you will swear at yourself. The park is very badly maintained with garbage everywhere, a must-not-go toilet and not attractive flora.

The park itself though beautiful is average, but if you walk up the reservoir then you have the magnificent... More
