Should visit this place after the Monsoon. Good place to have an evening walk. The breeze and the view is excellent. Nice place to view sunset as well. Reach here by 4.30 PM to enjoy it.

You need to climb a small hill (~200 m walk + ~200 steps) to view the dam. You can also opt for van service for Rs. 10. Nothing spectacular.
