The dam drops down to a height of around 140 feet. The curved rim-like shape of the structure lends both ample area and force to the water gushing downwards as well as a spectacular sight to the few visitors it hosts every day; a beautiful reminder about how the Arabian Sea isn’t the only form of water body in Goa capable of such dramatic force.
While getting too close to the edge of the dam is strictly prohibited, the sheer force of the water lashing at the dam base generously drenches everyone around with a much-needed shower after a sweltering day.
A few signboards around solemnly claimed that photography was prohibited in the area – but don’t let that stop you. It seems that the law was helplessly lost somewhere in the thunderous yet tranquil aura of the dam. In fact, the visual brilliance of the spot is sure to uplift the most ordinary photographers to fleeting moments of supremacy behind the lens.
