People of Durgapur go to this humongous barrage to enjoy lovely sunset with a splash of a gentle breeze.

On a lovely summer afternoon, after a long irritating day of scorching heat, you should definitely go to this barrage.

The pleasant cold breeze of the evening will soothe you definitely. Also, the pleasant burbling of the river Damodar will calm your soul.

The lovely view of sunset or sunrise from the barrage is really mesmerizing.

In summer Damodar dries up. During summer you can see cattle grazing around upon dried sandbank of river Damodar.

You can see small kayaks floating all over the river, while they are busy fishing.

You can simply stand upon the barrage and spend many hours just enjoying the mesmerizing view.

But, during monsoon, as DVC opens up the dam, you will not be able to find this calm, soothing river anywhere.
