We visited this dam when we were on our way to Balligavi and other nearby places. You can read my blog Top Places to visit in Shimoga for more details.

There was also park nearby to the dam which was just inaugrated when we visited the dam. Since it was raining we couldn’t capture the pictures of the park.
