At a distance of 64 Kms from Coimbatore, Aliyar Dam is a charming location surrounded by Annamali Hills with wonderful natuarl views. It is located between Pollachi and Valparai. Built across Aliyar River between 1959 and 1969, the primary purpose of the dam is to support irrigation. The height of the dam is 81 meters.
There is a well maintained park built at bottom of the Dam. The view of the Anamalai range around the reservoir is a feast for the eyes and the view of the coconut groves from top of the dam is amazing. Boating is available here.
