“Huge!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Built on the tungabbhadra river, this is probably one of teh largest reservoirs in the country.
Good for a late evening visit when the sun is setting.

The view from the temple is better than the observation deck.
Bus rides to the temple is just 20 INR.

Good way if you have a few hours on a afternoon to kill on your trip to Hampi.

“nice place to spend an evening”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

If one keeps the expectation low, this is a good place to spend an evening and watch sunset. One needs to walk quite a distance to reach the dam area from the parking lot. The garden is not maintained very well. Definitely not a "must visit" place.

“Musical fountain is worth the visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

The musical fountain in the garden is worth the visit. The show is short & entertaining. They play a mix of Kannada & Hindi songs. Rest of the garden is average. If you have kids, then they may enjoy the place due to loads of space to run around.

“Nice place for an evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Went there a bit late in the evening. It's a nice place, and they have a musical fountain at around 7pm or so for 15 minutes which is good. Only dislike is on the way up, if it gets dark, there are no street lights and we had to switch on our mobile flashlight to reach our way up which we found irritating.
