“Half-day trip from Bangalore”
Review of Krishnagiri Dam

Krishnagiri Dam
Attraction details
Reviewed 2 May 2018

This is a decent half-day trip from Bangalore, Less than 100 kms and you can break at Sree Krishna Inn midway. Last 7 kms drive to the destination is through villages, but the road is smooth and wide. Do not overspeed as local villagers and cattle frequently cross the roads and vehicles come in opposite direction. There is a check-post at the entrance of the dam. Fee for two adults and car parking costed 30 INR. Walk to the dam takes 10 minutes. One can spend 1-2 hours of time here. The view from the top of the dam is very good. There is a well maintained garden and is a photographers' delight. Start early morning to avoid scorching heat reflecting from hill top and concrete. Overall the place is clean, though the approach road where the dam water drains has got a stink.

Amenities:
+ Open car parking
+ Wash room/toilet - reasonably clean
+ Snacks, Water, Cool drinks, Fruit salad available
- Not recommended for food - did not find hygienic

Caution:
> Carry sunglasses, even early mornings - sun is very bright
> Be very careful with stray dogs, they tend to sleep between bushes in the garden.
> Carry water - nothing available on the top of dam
> Elderly people will find it difficult to climb the stairs leading to the dam

Enjoy your trip!

The place was closed and apart from this bridge view there is nothing in terms of water body. There is one garden and small zoo nearby which is good.

This is a dam built across River Kaveri and it located midway between Krishnagiri and Dharmapuri's districts. People visit this place to enjoy the scenic beauty. Yelagiri hills located close by is also another attraction for the tourists.

This Dam is located midway between Dharmapuri and Krishnagiri. It's serves as a beautiful picnic spot. The surrounding area is well landscaped and developed into beautiful parks with gardens. Lush greenery is offered by the park with several flowering plants. Spending some time here is so rejuvenating.
