Overview
Away from the hustle and bustle of the city lies a place, dressed all in green.

The surangam or Suranga is a traditional water management system used to provide a reliable supply of water for human settlements and irrigation in Kasargod district of Kerala and Dakshin Kannada district of Karnataka. Surangam is basically a tunnel dug through a laterite hillock from the periphery of which water and moisture seeps out. Surangams are similar to Qanats which once existed in Mesopotamia and Babylon around 700 Before Common Era (BCE)
