“GOOD RIVER BARRAGE WORTH-VISITING”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2012

This is primarily a River Barrage on the mighty Mahanadi River which flows on one side of Cuttack City.The gretest attraction of the place is a road bridge just on the down-stream of the Dam which offers the passers-bye a fantastic spectacle of the water gushing down the Barrage.The place attracts crowds during evenings who come to watch the the vast expanse of the River water.They also savour on local snacks available with number of hawkers at the place.The beauty of the place is that one can get variety of fresh fish being sold on the pavements of the road bridge.

“The Cuttack City has the flood control system.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2012

Mhanadi the biggest river in Odisha(the old name is Orissa) and plays a vital role for water supply to Industries near its confluence to the sea in Paradip.The river bifurcates to Mahanadi and Kathajodi in the downstream and runs on both sides of Cuttack city.The barrage has significant control for flood water.It is a civil engineering marvel.

“Airy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2012

A place that every Kata-ki is fond of ! :)
its the place where you wont ever feel bored or sweaty.
Awesome breeze.
Best place for lovers ;)
You may be irritated with the foul smell of th fish hawkers near by. But ignore you wont get a better place to see waters of the Mahanadi River with great intensity and vigor.
And if you happen to have a look during the floods, especially July month, Jannat is the word :)

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2011

this barrage is one of the places where we used to come as kids for a small drive, where i used to go as a teenager sometimes with friends juzz to hangout and catch some fresh air, its now not what it used to be, it has become busier on this that what it was 6-10 yrs back, but still love this place
