Considered to be one of the oldest dams, this is a well maintained dam. It is at the foothills of the Nelliyampathy hills. The dam is unique because it is built with an earth filled structure. It is on the way to Nelliyampathy Hills.

Our visit was off season as I understood. Whilst the water levels were low, we viewed it from a vantage point on our way up to the Nelliyampathi Hills and it was breath taking.

The views of the reservoir and dam are very nice but the tourist management could be a lot better. Parking is haphazard and there is overcrowding near the gate, often blocking the road. Garbage disposal needs to be enforced despite the warnings.
