Mekkara Dam Tirunelveli
Mekkara Dam one of the dams in Tirunelveli is cited on the eastern side of the Western Ghats. It provides water for the fields of Tirunelveli, Tuticorin and Virudhunagar districts of Tamil Nadu.
The dam is about 670 meters long. It is a perfect picnic spot and plays a role in Tirunelveli Tourism with the lush green surroundings of the dam. This is naturally located in the borderline of Tamil Nadu and Kerala.
Bounded by the Western Ghats, this region is fairly a vista. It has become an idyllic serene spot for those who want to be away from the hustle bustle of the cities and towns.
The Mekkara reservoir is the harness of existence for the abundant green paddy fields that surrounds it. It proffers a complete and delightful fusion of two elements of Mother Nature – earth and water.
The milieu of the Ghats on the paddy fields of the plains and water from the reservoir offers a charming view.
