About Amaravathi Dam

Positioned near Pollachi, Amaravati dam primarily serves the function of a water reservoir. It has an interestingly designed recreational area where one can climb up and enjoy a striking view of the plains below, along with the Anaimalai Hills and Palani Hills in sight. This dam offers some picturesque views so it is a good place to plan a picnic with your loved ones. Located in Indira Gandhi Wildlife Sanctuary, the dam is accompanied by a well laid-out park with steps going up to the dam. This is a steep dam that was meant to provide irrigation to surrounding areas. You will find a wild breeding population of Crocodiles living in the reservoirs and it is a delight for tourists. Large-snouted Mugger Crocodiles or Marsh Crocodiles as well as some Persian Crocodiles are seen here. The Amaravathi Sagar Crocodile Farm located in vicinity is a must visit as it is the biggest crocodile nursery in India. Set up way back in 1976, it has about 100 crocodiles.
