The dam, nearby crocodile farm (with snakes), and the gardens around are beautiful. But the hidden gem is the viewpoint of the lake from a spot next to the local village school, a few hundred metres away from the dam. The spot is popular for local couples and families. The clear water and the reflection of the green hills in... More

The Dam and surroundings are quite silent and beautiful. A place to sit and relax where you can hear the music of birds. Across the dam, there is a bridge. We can walk over the bridge and can enjoy the beauty of nature.

The place is about 35 km from Calicut City. The drive is lovely , fresh and absolutely green . Visitors from places where the vegetation is sparse will be thrilled . It is wild and nature let loose. Nothing much as far as tourist facilities are concerned. Routine tea shops , verdant villages, nonchalant attitude. Visit if you like greenery.

The garden and near by mini zoo in dangerous stage now. Boat service is also stopped. It will be a great spot if authorities have a vision and care. Even though dam site is very... More

Don't expect more. Its a small dam. If you are a nature lover and ready to accept anything that provided by nature then its the right place. Just relax and walk over the dam. Listen the water flowing sound, I am sure you feel good. Entry ticket is only Rs: 10/- for adults.

The place used to be very attractive some 30 years ago but is so rundown today that one cannot recommend it to new visitors. The dam itself is not well maintained and the guest house and the garden on the hillock have gone to seeds. Not recommended for a visit.
