  • Recently new fish aquarium created it's mind blowing you cant expect better then this. It's amazing. Hats off to the administration. Well done sir. Keep it up. A must visit for kids and all age group. Malampuzha dam is simply enjoyment.
  • Drove to Malampuzha damn from Thrissur on a Saturday. The roads leading to this place from the National highway is in good shape. There is enough parking space for cars. Dam was very crowded on the day we visited. Lots of excited school children were running around. We had assumed 3 hours for the visit but as it turned out it took us more than 5 hours . The damn is very huge and walking from one corner to the other takes a long time. There is dedicated play area for kids but I felt the equipments were really old and rusty. Toy train experience was one of it's kind. Costs 10 bucks for an adult. There are enough snack counters in the park but unfortunately they don't sell drinking water but are happy to sell sugar loaded drinks like 7up and all. Please carry your own water. Overall it's a good place to spend half a day with your family.
