A locale blessed with abundant natural beauty, mist-filled mountains that seem to be kissing the sky and a majestic structure that stands imposingly as a testimony to modern engineering marvel – the Malampuzha Dam in Palakkad is indeed a sight to behold. Completed in the year 1955, the Malampuzha Dam is an elegant combination of a masonry dam and an earthen dam, each standing at 1,849 metres and 220 metres long respectively. The dam crosses Malampuzha river, which is a tributary of the famed Bharathappuzha river. 

Malampuzha is the second-largest dam and reservoir in Kerala. Situated in the idyllic Western Ghats, the dam comes with a total catchment area of 145 sq. km. and a reservoir capacity of 8,000 cubic meters of water. There is a beautiful rock-cut garden made from broken pieces of bangles, tiles and other waste materials adjoining the dam. The garden is embellished with flowering beds and rose gardens. ‘Malampuzha Yakshi’-  a massive structure of a female vampire erected by the renowned sculptor Kanhayi Kunhiraman is a part of the gardens. There is also a ropeway that gives you a splendid aerial view of the surroundings. There are gardens and amusement parks nearby. Also, boating facility is offered in the river.
