Edathara chola check dam

Beautiful check dam near Kolathur KSEB substation on Angadipuram Valanchery State Highway ...

Small springs flowing through the valleys of the State Highway are tied up here. Clear and clean, the reservoir is reminiscent of a beautiful swimming pool ..

There will always be clear water here as the water is always flowing over the dam. The water flowing from the check dam falls down into a small waterfall...
