  • No one really visit the place...... also the place is not well developed....the view from the dam is very beautiful....especially during evening...not that great place but yeah worth one time visit......  more »
  • Totally disappointed. Not developed as tourist place. Dont waste your time to visit such remote location. 
  • The outflow from the dam is just the perfect spot for photography . The backwater s of the dam is a great spot to relish and enjoy your day out.
