The Amaravathi Dam is a dam constructed by the Amaravathi River.

The associated Amaravathi Reservoir is in area and deep. The dam was built primarily for irrigation and flood control and now also has four megawatts of electrical generating capacity installed. It is notable for the significant population of mugger crocodile s living in its reservoir and catchment basin.
The dam was built across the Amaravati River in 1957, during K. Kamaraj's administration, about 25 km upstream and south of the Thirumoorthy Dam.
There is a well laid-out park where one may climb steep steps on the dam to have a picturesque view north of the plains below and south to the Anaimalai Hills and Palni Hills above. Boating for tourists in the dam began on 14 January 2011.
