The dam offers some ideal getaways including a park, garden, aquarium, play area and a mini Theme-Park. The scenery is beautiful, with mountains surrounding three quarters of the reservoir. Boating is also available. This place not cleaning a park .... entrance ticket collection only not develop the park. dam roadway, hills,water very nice and dam opposite side Aquarium is there color full fish is nice.
  • Very nice and peaceful place filled with natures beauty. This is small park built around the Aliyar Dam. Entry to the park allows the entry to Dam as well. Entry fee is nominal only. This place easily accessible from Coimbatore. Situates outside the City one could access this place via Pollachi. One could also get Public transport bus from Coimbatore via Pollachi. There is also boating facility inside the dam.
