  • 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.
  • One should not click and post the pics of this place as it is not good for our national security. Otherwise it is an Amazing place. You can watch the wonder of engineering here. You need to get permission before you visit here.
  • 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.
  • 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.
