This is a very big water Reserver of Orissa. One side of the Reserver is called Burla and the Other is called Hirakud. There were two minars avalable in both side called Neheru Minar And Gandhi Minar.

This is the Biggest Dam I have ever seen in my life, wherever your eyes go you can see water clean, try to visit at the time when the gates are open in rainy season. You can go to Gandhi tower and have a 360 degree view of the DAM

Hirakud Dam is good place to visit, one can witness man made wonder , the longest dam of india, but with proper infrastructure and development this place can be turn into major tourist attraction place. There are lot's of small island inside the dam which can be turn into good holiday resort.
