The Sabua Dam’s beauty is encapsulated in the tourism slogans of Odisha: scenic, calm, and magnificent. The control reservoir is located in the Hindol block of the Dhenkanal district, roughly 90 kilometers from Bhubaneswar.
This concrete barrier’s building structure is serpentine. Even the present holding company’s name, “Sapua,” means “snake” in Latin.
This dam’s splendor is breathtaking. Thousands of tourists attend every picnic.
The dam was erected on a local Nara River called “Sapua” in the Mahanadi Basin by the Odisha Department of Water Resources as a medium-sized irrigation project. This corresponds to the reservoir’s name, “Sabuya Dam.” In 2006, the dam was built.
This once-restricted area is now a popular tourist destination for camping, sightseeing, and picnics. It also has an advantage because it is surrounded by a lush coniferous forest.
“The frequency has risen in recent years, although basic facilities are lacking.” Sydivia Behra, a local engineer with a university degree, believes the government should step up and take the required safeguards.
People come here with their families from all over the state to enjoy the scenery and pass the time.
“The Sabua dam is an excellent alternative for explorers,” said Rajesh Behera, a bicycle from Dhenkanal city. The government should repair the roads because they have become quite hazardous.”
Many travelers raced to the destination as word of its beauty spread, hoping to catch a sight of this otherworldly area.
