Kangsabati dam was built along 11 km to grant irrigation facilities to the arable land of 8,000 sq. km, covering Purulia, Bankura, Paschim Medinipur and some parts of upper Hooghly. This is the main attraction among Mukutmanipur sightseeing places. This Mukutmanipur dam, known as the second largest earthen dam in India, was constructed under the administration of Dr. Bidhan Chandra Roy, the then Bengal’s Chief Minister. The Kangsabati Dam has become a picnic spot, frequented by people for leisure.In the monsoon, from July to September, Mukutmanipur sports a different look altogether. When the reservoir is full and the Kangsabati spills its gorge the rhythmic music of water will leave you spellbound. It is a different feel visiting Mukutmanipur in the winter.
