I found this place while searching for places to visit in South Goa. Decided to visit and to my surprise, it was a fabulous place which must be visited during or just after the monsoon. Especially, when the dam is full and when the water flows over the horse-shoe shaped spillway, it looks fantastic. The dam backwater itself has a beautiful surroundings. Around the dam, govt. has built garden and other recreational stuff and thus, families can spend a whole day there.
It's a fantastic place not to be missed during the monsoon.

This dam is one of a kind. It's true beauty can be seen in the monsoon when the rain water fills up the reservoir and then spills into the well like horizontal structure. See it to believe it. The cascading water splashes and mist of water rises up. The sprinkling water on you on a hot day is a cherry on the cake. The dam is surrounded by a well maintained botanical garden. The steps are a steep climb but surely worth the visit.

You have to see it to believe it. The design of the dam is unique & marvelous. It's called the Duckbill spillway, also called Morning glory spillway or Bell Mouth spillway. The dam has no gates.

When the reservoir fills up, the extra water enters the vertical shaft and then travels to the horizontal conduit to reach the river downstream.

The scenic beauty can be seen only in the rainy season. If you are visiting Goa in rainy season, you must visit this place.

Built on the Zuari river, this is probably one of the only one of the duck bill type dam in India with the overflow from the lake passing thru a well into the dam walls..definitely worth a visit during monsoons or even during other seasons, provided there is enough water in the lake to overfloor beyond the edge of the cone. It also has a decently sized park with a small eatery. Overall an impressive and unexpected treat in that locale for a visitor!!

It is a dam is located on a tributary of Zuari river near Sanguem. The Fresh Water reservoir formed on the upside of the Dam provides water for irrigation and drinking. Visitors are allowed to go on to the dam, for which they have to buy entry tickets. There two locations where tickets can be purchased; one is near the entrance to the Botanical garden on the downside of the dam and the other one adjacent to the dam.
Photography is allowed on the dam, except near the Spillway Well. There are guard posted on the dam to monitor the visitors.
The dam appears very impressive, especially during the rainy season.
The steps are provided to go up to the dam from the Botanical Garden. However, some of the metal railings provided for hand grab are badly rusted and holed, with ability to cause injury.

Its the best place to visit during monsoon. A very unique dam. My eyes nearly popped out watching it. The 2 rainbows are cherry on top.
