Anaipatty Dam, Nilakottai, Dindigul
Anaipatty Dam is located at a distance of around 10 km from Anaipatty Anjaneyar temple. It is also called as Peranai. It is a reservoir and a fine picnic spot from October to late February, provided the north-east monsoon sets properly and water is released from the Vaigai Dam. Peranai is a unique confluence of waters from several dams the Vaigai Dam, the Marudanadi Dam in Dindigul, the Manjalar, and Varahanadhi Dams in Theni.





It is not a separate catchment area but collects and diverts water released from the Vaigai every year to irrigate 2, 00,000 hectares in Madurai District. This is in Nilakottai taluk of Dindigul. It is approximately 15 kilometres from Nilakottai town on the Madurai-Kodaikanal road.
