This spectacular feat of engineering was built between 1960 and 1971, and measures 3,830 metres (12,570 feet) long, 111 metres (364 feet) high and 980 metres (3,214 feet) wide. At the eastern end of the dam there is a visitors' pavilion detailing how the dam was constructed. At the western end there is a lotus shaped tower, built to commemorate the Soviet Union's support in the dam’s construction.
