We visited this Dam last month on 20.06.15. We enjoyed the trip. It is at walkable distance from the hotel we stayed i.e. Karnataka State Tourism Hotel. The view of the water from top, near the lighthouse is awesome. The garden is beautiful and maintained cleanly. On the whole one can never forget the experience. - Balasubramanian, Dharmapuri (TN)

we went along with four families with children. Unfortunately we went after the sunset, but with the limited light available, we enjoyed the scenic beauty of the dam.

The dam is a on the outskirts of Hospet - a 20 mins drive. Parking is easy to get with plenty of food hawkers. One can either walk it to the dam or take a shuttle which charges a nominal fee. The shuttle takes you all the way to the guest house area on top which offers a 360 degree... More

Great view from top. Must visit at sunset time. Other activities, musical fountain (after sunset 7:10 & 8 pm), aquarium (below average) & deer park. Ideal place for evening outing with friends & family. Children will love it.

A serene place to visit if you are around Hospet or while visiting Hampi. Nice weather in the winters. A good trek up the hill. The garden is pretty as well. Light and sound show was ordinary, can skip it. A good place to visit overall.

Beautiful view from the top. Make sure you take the bus to the top near the light house. Enjoy the breathtaking 360degree view of the dam and gardens.
