Have all the natural elements to develop in to a great attractive spot. Totally neglected by the Government. Even though entry fee is charged hardly any amenity is available. Whatever infrastructure exists the same is in dilapidated state and even repairs are not carried out....More

Highly recommended if you’re a sunset lover and want to take a break & relax somewhere while in Bhubaneswar. Also visit Jhumka Dam which is just 2 kms away from Deras Dam.

Most locals would have visited the Dera Dam at some point in their lives. Its not a "touristy place" and not recommended for the out of station tourist. Its a nice place to spend time once in a while. It quiet a sight during Monsoons.
