SunstarTV Bureau: If you are a sucker for scenic beauty, you cannot keep ‘Sapua Dam’ out of your bucket list. 90 km away from Odisha’s capital city Bhubaneswar, this unique Snake-shaped dam is situated in Hindol block of Dhenkanal district.
The name ‘Sapua’ in Odia language can be literally translated into snake.
The dam was primarily built as a part of medium irrigation project by the Water Resource Department of Odisha, across a local nullah called ‘Sapua’ under the Mahanadi basin. The construction of the dam was constructed in 2006.
This obsolete dam has become a primary choice for the camping enthusiasts. A saal forest abutting it has enriched the alluring beauty of the dam.
The people longing for some quality time with their friends and families have tagged this place as a perfect ‘Hide-out’.
