Malampuzha Dam is the second largest reservoir in Kerala, located near Palakkad, in the state of Kerala in South India, built post independence by the then Madras state. Situated in the scenic hills of the Western Ghats in the background it is a combination of a masonry dam with a length of 1,849 metres and an earthen dam with a length of 220 metres.[2] The dam is 355 feet high and crosses the Malampuzha River, a tributary of Bharathappuzha, Kerala's second longest river. There is a network of two canal systems that serve the dam's reservoir of 42,090 hectares.<ref name=malampuzha>"About Malampuzha Dam". मलामपुझा केरल के वेंबनाड जिला में एही नाँव के बंधा के रिजर्वायर हवे। एकर नाँव बगल में मौजूद गाँव के नाँव पर रखल गइल हवे।
