Not knowing what would happen, we naively bought our tickets, went through security and out of suddon two Persons from Government stopped us. They asked us for our Visa and Passport to enter.

Why would you require that?!
They wanted to have a copy from each to send it to their gouverment tp check.

This is a Tourist Attraktion not a Border Control!

Don‘t go there. Its not worth wasting you time and energy.

KRS dam is one of must visit place when one is in and around Mysuru. One should visit the just after the rainy season ends, Sept to Nov is ideal time, where they open the gates and its great to watch the water gushing out of these gates, and all the credit should go to Sir M Visveshwaraiah. There is garden near by called as Brindavan which is beautiful to watch, and lot of space for parking you vehicle. Garden is filled with lots flora which are mesmersizing, there is musical fountain in the evening which is spectacular to watch. So try to reach place by 15:00 so that one get time to watch the Dam, Garden and musical fountain.

The dam, gardens and the musical fountain show are brilliant and worth visiting (5 stars). However, driving to the place is a NIGHTMARE. The roads are in HORRIBLE condition. Clouds of dust and potholes will greet you every step of the way once you get off the highway.

This dam is the main source for drinking water for Mysuru, Mandya and for the Bengaluru city. We visited in the evening just before dark as the gardens with it comes to life with lighting. An architecture marvel not to miss.

The light fountain and the music are a good watch.

But it gets very crowded in the evening,so people having kids be mindful.

The parking management could do with some upgrade, It's been the same since 30 yrs.they charge ₹100 and they don't have any officials to help you out. Also going out is chaotic due to the traffic jams, that needs to be handled better.

It's a must visit spot when you are in and around Mysore. It's also called as Brindhavan Gardens and KRS.
This was built by Sir M Vishevshwaraiah and is the life line for many Farmer's in Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. Looks awesome during night when the fountain lights are on. You can enjoy the illuminated gardens, musical fountain, boating etc.

I visited this dam with family during dasara festival. It was spectacular display with lights for the occasion. This dam is at a distance of 20km from mysore. It is built on the river kaveri and serves as the main source of irrigation and drinking water for millions. Brindavan gardens located along with the dam is well maintaned with the glass house and Musical fountain as its main attractions. One should defenitely wait till sunset to watch the musical fountain.
Good place to go with family. One must expect traffic and crowd during holidays.

This dam is located near Brundavan gardens. When we went there all the gates were opened and it looked amazing. You can get wet as the water comes with great force.

Great Dam built across the river Cauvery. Was built by a great engineer and statesman Sir M.Vishweshwaraiah and ably supported by the Mysore Maharaja. This dam is definitely an engineering marvel during the time in which it was built. The dam comes into full glory during rainy season. The garden (called Brindavan Gardens) alongside is as beautiful and will come to full life in the evenings when the whole garden and the fountains is lit with colourful lights. Overall a beauty to enjoy. A romantic place.. Lots of old Hindi, Kannada and other south Indian films have been shot here. This place is also called as Kannambadi Katte.

It takes about 30mins from Mysore to reach KRS Dam by car. The garden at this Dam is illuminated daily from 7pm. Musical fountain also functions from 7pm to 9pm with 15mins shows and 5mins intervals between shows. Both Garden and Musical fountains are of average quality though many films shot their songs here in sixties.

You can spend about 1 hrs here.

Refreshments and snacks are available at different places of the garden, Toilet facility is available. Entry ticket of Rs20 is to be taken at the gate. Plenty of car parking is available.
