ARUVIKKARA DAM

Aruvikkara Dam is located @ distance of about 15 kms from Trivandrum Central Railway Station, Aruvikkara Dam is a beautiful dam constructed over Karamana River. There is a small park laid out with an artificial waterfall. It is dangerous to take a bath in the dam because of the innumerable rocks that have huge curve-ins. There is an ancient Bhagavathi Temple dedicated to Goddess Durga on the banks of Karamana River built on a rock.About 16 kilometers (10 miles) from Trivandrum, on the banks of the serene Karamana River is this lovely picnic destination called Aruvikkara. The place is popular for its verdant surroundings, a beautiful dam, and the Durga temple. Near the temple is a meandering stream replete with fish that quite fearlessly swim close to the shore in schools to have the crumbs thrown in by the visitors. The fish here are considered holy, and feeding them is believed to cure ailments such as warts, whiteheads and blemishes on the skin. Boating facilities are available at the reservoir. Stroll the length of the stream, feed the fish, soak up the greenery, stop to take pictures and simply enjoy the breeze. Aruvikkara Dam offers an idyllic setting to enjoy a day out with your family in Trivandrum.
