I stayed there for one night. Majumdar niwas is a nice place to stay. Chicken curry was awesome. But, the place is crowded. The mesmerizing view of the dam is a bit blocked by the trees.

Maithan dam is a great place to hang out if you like boating and spending time at windy place. That,s the cheapest place to visit in Asansol. :)

Good place for picnic with family and friends. Proper care needs to be taken because there has been a history of accidents. Also families might encounter some inconvenience due to not so public behavior of youngsters in groups. The temple nearby can also be visited.

Cooking is not allowed near the barrage but there is a picnic spot near the sports hostel where you can cook for picnic. Hope this helps.
