Rautara Dam and Sluice Gate

Type: Dam and Barrage
Contributed By: Nayeem


It is located close to the Milk Vita processing zone. Though it is named Nimaichara Badh local people know it as Rautara Badh. During rainy season it almost turns into a sea. After the end of rainy season scattered pulses and Masakali are spread here. They are mainly used as food for cow. During winter farmers feed their cows here. This place was donated by the famous poet Rabindranath Tagore from his Zamider Bari. As a result of Iridhana enactment only grain is being planted. The raw water dam close to the RautaraBadh sweeps all the grain away. As a result it turns into sorrow for farmers.
