  • Very good place. Don't miss rope way. Good place to visit with family. On public holidays, there will be huge rush. One day is needed to cover total Malampuzha. 
  • If you are visiting this side of the world, make sure to visit Malampuzha dam. Nothing extraordinary about it; but still worth a visit. I think there is a ropeway too there. 
  • Maintenance is not good. Rope car is one of the main attraction. Old Hanging Bridge is another attractions.

  • Best to visit on or immediate after rainy season to see the beauty of Malampuzha Gardens and Fountains. On other occasions it may seem as dry land... Best time to be at the top of DAM is at 6.15PM to see the light shows... Before that finish all roaming at garden and be ready at DAM. Best one day trip place for family, school trips and other groups
  • Its one of the best tourist spots in palakkad. 7km away from palakkad junction. Garden, Dam, rope way and boating are the major attraction. All type of age group people can enjoy this place.
  • Nice place to hangout in Palakkad. Don’t miss these things when you visit there. Suspension bridge, "The Yakshi" Statue, Rope way ride. Other attractions - Aquarium, Snake park, Rock garden. Fantasy Park.
  • A good place for team outing or a family outing. Plastics are prohibited inside the Gardens. Rope car facility inside the gardens to take a look from the top. Dam inside the garden are allowed for visitors. Parks for children. Ice cream parlor, water facility, swimming pool, lockers are available inside the gardens. Good maintenance and security.
  • Good place to spend good time over a week end... the park is awesome and there is an aquarium to visit... There is a safari available which takes you to the top of Dam and far beyond... this would be very awesome you would a complete view about the dam and water catchment areas.... so nice....
