There's little to do there, but the view of the mountains, and the breeze at the catchment area is a memorable... More

The ideal time to visit this place is on a weekday when there are no crowds. The place is serene, quiet and very, very beautiful. The garden is huge, well maintained and is a pretty place.

Good hangout in Calicut palakkad stretch. Quiet isolated place with a few wildlife. Got a huge park out of proportion to the visitors turning out there. Cons: hot climate, not suitable for summer season, no good restaurants.

Not much crowded. But garden needs more care. You can find similar dams in Kerala. You have access to the dam. The catchment area looks beautiful. You won't get disappointed.

A good location to spend your evening with family and young ones. The park is good but needs maintanance. The garden alos needs it. But it is clean and one has enough space to walk and enjoy the evening.

The Dam itself is a good walk up but once you are up there it provides a lovely view. There is a nicely laid out garden below and provides a nice outing for local crowd. We were told boating would be available but were disappointed that its not available anymore
