Visited this place in a group of three for photography purpose. A good location for outing. Did Lunch at a Dhaba. MP tourism also provide the luxury tent stay beside the Dam and also offers some day activities. A good place to visit for a day trip

The Kolar is a right bank tributary of the Narmada River. It flows for a total length of 101 km, ... Near Lakhweri in Sehore, the Kolar Dam, a masonry dam has been built across the river and it provides water to Bhopal city.

Kolar dam and its vicinity has some of the most beautiful scenic beauty which is sure to attract nature lovers and photographers.Don't expect much eateries around and do your own arrangements for food etc.

Although this is the oldest dam of Bhopal (i guess) and an important dam as well, there is nothing unique about it (not much panoramic beauty around it). Anyway, watching it while the gates are open is always a pleasure.

The Kolar dam is another scenic location to enjoy nature's beauty, near Bhopal city. A little away from the city unlike a few other dams, this place makes for a good day's picnic. While there's a small restaurant where food items were available, we preferred carrying our own eatables with us. The sun set view here was the high point... More

Had also been to Kolar Dam during Bhopal visit recently. The place is frequented by nature lovers who come here to savour the greenery and the calmness the place offers. While not as crowded as some of the other dams nearer to the city, the place has its own character & plus points. There is a restaurant nearby where one... More

A great place for sunset viewing; family picnic and enjoyment in a peaceful atmosphere. Cleanliness at certain parts can be challenging, so be wary of the same
