The dam is surrounded by forested hills on three sides; and a charming road that leads you to the forest. It is described as a ‘natural earthen dam’, unique because it is constructed only with clay and granite.

                                                   Roughly 12 km from Nagercoil town, the Mukkudal Dam is built across the Vambaru River. It was built by the King of Travancore, Chitira Tirunal, in 1645. The storage is around 50 feet. The picturesque setting and the clean water make it a pleasant spot for a picnic and some boating too.

How to get there

There are regular bus services from Nagercoil. Disembark at Thuvarancaud or Thittuvilai and take a brief autorickshaw ride to the dam.
