The dam is good to visit during July to January. The park is enjoyable for kids and you can relax forgetting all your tensions. Plan to visit in evening for better enjoyment.

The Vaigai Dam is an average place to relax and enjoy for locals. Not much value for tourists. If you visit in summer, you will not see water.

Visited 2 times but both were not during the perfect period to watch a dam. Of course, one time it was only sand we could see, I hope it was in April 2014. Even Cavery also looked similar to her.
