  • Greatest man made marvels. When I first time visited this place, then I was completely amazed to see it. The lake behind dam is so big that it gives the feeling of a sea. Due to restrictions, you are allowed to take pictures here which is slightly disappointing because of great beauty.
  • very disappointed.. When to visit family...in Nangal and when we got to the Dam.. we were refused enter as l hold a British Passport... also very disturbing to know that... when the Waters overflow (the dangers).. that they release the waters and not even think about peoples lives down stream.... well at least we learned something about it... The very best part of the trip was going to Anadapur Sahib. With such a great Dam... there is never any Dame electricity in rural houses...
  • One of the largest reservoir. Offers great view. A pass must be obtained to enter the area from PRO office. Photography not allowed due to security reasons.
  • Pride of india Simply an example of India's expertise in mid nineties in constructing such a big dam Nice place to visit
  • Man made building. Thanks to all those who built it. Very useful in hydel power production and irrigation. But we should use water judiciously that it can help us in future.
