Mukkadal Dam

Back To Kanyakumari

Mukkadal Dam is crowned as the “natural earthen dam” due to its construction using clay and granite. The dam was built in the year 1945 across the Vambaru river under the decision and guidance of  Sree Chithira Thirunal Balarama Varma. The dam is one of the finest spots for nature lovers and trekkers as it is set on the backdrop of forest surrounded by hills on three sides. The dam is a perfect spot to spend the evening time. The water splashing through the reservoir is a mesmerizing visual. There is a park located adjacent to the dam that offers a beautiful view of the reservoir and the surrounding.  A calm, serene and tranquil location, the Mukkadal Dam is a perfect location to enjoy a walk and for immense fun either alone, with family or friends.
