This place is teeming with picnickers on a weekend, especially in the cooler months. I went there by my own car from Bishnupur town,for a quick tour of the place. Roads are pretty decent and I was dependent on GPS,which actually didn't disappoint. I asked for directions at few crossings as well. The place is too crowded,especially for picnickers and... More

Nothing really great about this place. It is barrage of water over the kansaboti river. There are a long walk over the dam and a boat ride at the end. Although this place offers some great view of photography. The picnic group in winter actually makes this place extremely dirty and unhealthy. Not a must visit place.

Visited several times starting from child age and every time this place soothes soul. A hill temple in between the dam road is surely to be framed.

Mukutmonipur dam is built on the confluence of two rivers, kangshaboti and kumari. Walk/drive on the dam and boat ride in the reservoir is totally recommended.We took an early morning boat ride in the still water of the reservoir to the pareshnath temple which is situated on one of the small hillocks surrounding the reservoir. From there the 360 degree... More
