Marudhanadhi Dam (View)

Marudhanadhi Dam in the Dindugal district of Tamil Nadu is one of the main water resources to the surrounding villages of the same. The dam is situated between the Western Ghats valley of lower Palani Hills.

Marudhanadhi Dam View
During my visit to Thandikudi, I come across an overlook on the dam while travel between Thandikudi and Pannaikadu on the half Kodaikanal hills. The view (from 1400 m) was truly wonderful although there was very less water in the dam since the southwest monsoon hadn't arrived yet then (June 2013).

Jeevan,
I love the greenery surrounding the dam.
Can't tell if there is enough water, but Tamilnadu has had many drought issues, over the years, and managed them successfully. So, I guess some water is better than no water.
Dindukkal - yes, been there once.
Peace :)

The view is nice and breathtaking! The water has not filled the dam yet but the grass grew so fast! Our dams here are filled with granite rocks at the bottom.

Breathtaking views. A pity that there is so little water in the reservoir !

Beautiful pictures. the first one has got the mountain/hill also in the frame. Looks so green.

It must be full of water now. We had good rains now.
