Photograph of the Pothundy dam reservoir..You know, instead of using concrete core for the dam this dam is built by using an unusual mixture of jaggery and quick lime.. The concrete used in olden times in kerala..You can see many palaces and dams built of this lime and jaggery mixture in Kerala. They are standing still..The famous Mullaperiyar dam which is in much controversy now is built in this mixture of materials.. Its said that a mixture of jaggery lime and also egg yolk..

 The calm and cool waters...
Breeding of fresh water fishes may be considered in this type of places, you may know about the neyyar dam in trivandrum district of kerala. Instead of fish it had crocodiles in it. a big croc world trying to taste the animals and humans coming to the reservoir for water and fishing.. I think now all the crocodiles are rehabilitated from the dam and no casualties are reported since then.

This dam construction started by october 1953.The dam and left bank canal was compleated and opened by september 1956...further extension with right bank canal was continued and compleated by 1966..Total expenditure till 1995-96 is about 197 lakhs..

The place is an item to be ordered in the menu of  kerala tourism...Tourists visiting palakkad district will surely happen to visit Mangalam and pothundy dams..Places like Nelliampathy, Nenmara etc are nearly to these dam sites (lesser than 40kms) which are much renown for the scenic natural landscapes and forests in Kerala..
