Kelavarapalli Dam has been constructed on the river Ponniar in Tamil Nadu and rises up to 13.50 m in height with a huge storing capacity. The dam leads the water to the districts of Cuddalore, Dharmapuri, Krishnagiri and Vellore. It is about 10 km away from Hosur and is on the road that diverts towards Kelavarapalli, off Bangalore road.
