Gangdua Dam

Gangdua Dam, also known as Shalidam, is built across the Shali River, about 4 km from the Amarkanan in Bankura District. This 4,900 ft long dam was constructed to save a particular village of Bankura from floods and now it irrigates nearly 1,320 acres of land. It is an ideal picnic spot where many people arrive, mostly during winter months. Shalidam is situated near Gobinda Prasad High School, on the way to Bankura- Mejia.

Bankura town is located about 185 km from Kolkata which is the nearest airport.
