The dam is okay, but if you are looking to see the sanctuaries - be clear: there are none - a couple of lions, a handful of crocodiles, and maybe two dozen dear - all in their zoo-like cages.

Though far from city (bus takes much time through bad roads) this natural beauty is a must see; the dam offers picturesque view and is calm that you feel it like a poster. Do not enter water as there are alligators/crocodiles in it. There is a nearby crocodile park and the lion safari is a must where you can see... More
