8.2 – Great / Excellent

 

Recently visited the Colonel John Pennycuick memorial at the Lower Camp, Theni district in Madurai. Colonel John Pennycuick is an British Army Chief engineer and civil servant responsible for building the historical Mullaiperiyar dam, to solve the drought situation in Vaigai delta region in 19th century. During the construction of the dam, as he could not get adequate funds, he sold his family property to mobilize money to fund the project, which was completed in 1895. To honor and salute his great contribution, the Public Works Department Office at Madurai houses a life-size bronze statue of Pennycuick.
