This aqueduct with a narrow bridge was built in 1969 to divert river water to rain-deficient areas. The bridge is quaint and we enjoyed spending a little while here. There is a nominal fee both for entry and for car parking. You can walk across the bridge and climb down the steps into the valley. But then you have to... More

It could be inspirational for students .. Could inspire them for school projects .. One can understand how rain water was saved and stored and taken up the storage with sheer water pressure and no extra energy ..

This wonder bridge is right now helping water to flow at elevated height for irrigation purpose. There is also a walkway besides the canal on the bridge, one can take a stroll and enjoy the breathtaking views from top of the bridge. Must visit place.

Fantastic place one must visit. Hats off to those engineers and commitment of the government.Easy to make out.. Vehicle go very near to the place... There are two points here. Thottapalam stands for the bridge and Mathur Aqueduct is river beneath that.

Could have been a little well managed by the local body.Though you can have a clear bird's eye view of the green surrounding from the top of the bridge but peace is something completely missing from this place.

Imagine being surrounded by trees and being above them! This place looks like something out of a fantasy movie! It was raining when we went to Mathur Aqueduct (we weren't carrying any umbrellas and there were no places to wait it out). The rain just added to its beauty. There is a small fee to enter the place and parking... More

This place is some good 40-50 kms from Kanyakumari. Requires own transportation as it is bit interior. Went during mid of Sep'15. This is a aqueduct which carries water from one hill to another. It had almost 6 feet of water when we met. Very good place with nice scenery. Its a good 10-15 minutes walk from the entrance to... More
