Wonderful serene place.... Good Place to relax on a weekend. Try out some local fish from fisherman. Though it is not a tourist attraction...it is just a dam yet offers a beauty and uniqueness what a tourist will enjoy. Also as it is not so famous...less people do mean then u have your peace.

A good place for an educative family picnic. While the elders can enjoy their drinks and food by the lake, the children can learn how turbines work. Amazing place.
