Though the dam site is located in a picturesque area, about 40 kms from Kannur, it is a waste of time to go there as some of our Tripadvisor members have pointed out. It is just a very simple picnic spot with scenic beauty. Otherwise,...More

Can be skipped if it is one of the places to visit in your itinerary. Nothing alluring about the place and can be just a site to watch enroute to visit other good places around Kannur.

In evening you can go for 5 10 mins , nothing much to explore , even if you miss this place don't worry , its not a point for attraction , simple dam nothing else.

there is nothing there-- absolutely nothing. No guide/restaurant/access/park. It's all ruined. But if you have time while coming/going to Kannur you can take diversion. It will cost you 1 hour from main road and if you love seeing old dam - go else skip.
