Grand Anicut Canal
Karikala Cholan (2nd Century AD) constructed a water reservoir of the Grand Anicut by raising flood banks in the River Cauvery to irrigate the wasteland beside the river. The ancient dam consists of a solid mass of rough stone and clay, stretching across the River Cauvery. It is a fine picnic spot.
