Banasura

The picturesque Banasura Sagar Dam is the largest earthen dam in India and the second largest in Asia. Banasura is located at Padinjarathara, about 25 km northeast of Kalpetta, Wayanad district, North Kerala. Located in the midst of lovely, mist clad hills with a wildlife sanctuary and park full of flowering trees, this spot of enchantment has no parallel. With its placid crystal clear waters Banasura is a wonderful picnic spot. The Banasura Hill, the second tallest mountain in Wayand is also another attraction. At Kalpetta, which once used to be the stronghold of the Jains in Kerala, you also have the attraction of historic monuments like the Ananthanathaswami Jain Temple near Puliyarmala.
