About Azhiyar Dam

The Aazhiyaar Dam is about 65 km from Coimbatore near the town of Pollachi. It was constructed in 1959-1969 across the Aliyar River with the aim to provide water for irrigation and also generate Hydro Electric power. This hydel project is a series of interconnected tunnels, tubes and canals that harness water of rivers like Aliyar, Parambikulum, Thekaadi and Palar. Apart from the dam, there is also a garden, a park and a play area for the kids here. A small theme park and an aquarium here are maintained by Tamil Nadu Fisheries. Did you know that the fish production level of Aliyar River is considered one of the highest among Indian reservoirs? Another great thing about this dam are the surrounding mountains that add to the natural beauty of the place. Boating facility is also available here. You may stay the night at treetops houses or the forest rest houses here.
