A leisure getaway for tourists in the picturesque Palakkad is the Malampuzha Dam and Garden. Malampuzha is a lush green township well known for its irrigation dam and nature trails. These are vast and stunning gardens and an amusement park for the kids surrounding the dam. The garden has a number of attractions, making it a major tourist location.
The garden is a masterpiece of the renowned sculptor Padmasree Neck Chand Saini. There are the beautiful rock gardens, a fish aquarium, a ropeway taking you on an aerial trip of the park and the huge sculptor of Yakshi, an enchantress. An interesting feature of the rock garden is that the entire garden is made of broken pieces of bangles, tiles, plastic cans and other wastes; a stunning visual treat which any traveller can't afford to miss.
