Second largest working capacity hydroelectric station in the country.
Aug 2020
This Dam is located on the way of Hyderabad-Srisailam Road. People who all are travelling from Hyderabad can visit this place by taking 10 min Halt here. If you are travelling by Public transport or State Transport bus then you need to comedown to @15 km from Srisailam bus stand.

This Dam is constructed across Krishna River on the boarders of Mahbub Nagar and Kurnool districts. One side Telangana district of Mahbub nagar and another side Andhra district of Kurnool. This is located in Andra pradesh and is part of Kurnool district. Dam has total 12 gates and if you visit during gates open time it will be great experience.

This Dam construction was started in 1960 and completed in 1981 and this is second largest working capacity hydroelectric station in the country.

The Srisailam Dam is a manmade marvel that has become one of the main tourist attractions of the area. Surrounded by beautiful nature all around, the dam offers wonderful views during monsoon season when all the gates are open. The excellent greenery all around, the sound of the water gushing through and the rhythmic fall of water makes it a haven for nature lovers. However, visitors should avoid travelling on the Hyderabad- Srisailam road during night as this particular route remains closed to traffic overnight from 9 pm to 6 am.

On way to Srisailam from Hyderabad you have to cross this dam. You can stop here for clicking a few pictures. The views are awesome in the evening. There are small round boats available to take you for a 15 mins ride. There is AP Tourism boat also upstream with fixed departures. There is a park next to the Dam where you can take pictures.

1. The road drive to the dam is amazing.
2. We stopped at the dam on the way to the temple.
3. Fortunately both the times, the gates were open in September and the experience of water falling on the road and on bystanders was good.

Good View - Nice Stopover
Nov 2019
If you are going to Srisailam, you will see the dam on the way ! a huge dam with a big holding reservoir. You can see the power station at the bottom with high tension wires going straight up towards a power grid. There is a designated viewpoint where you can stop and click pictures. Nice foresty things like berries and raw guavas are available. The water looks dark blue, you can also see Mallikarjuna Temple gopurams from this point.

Water all around Damn Good!

As soon as you get to view the magnitude of this dam , it stirs something within. It’s like caging a wild tiger. The river Krishna divides Telangana and AP around this area.TripAdvisor

A Damn good Dam to visit

The magnitude of the damn and its overpowering images make an impact on you as soon as you the first sight of river Krishna. The hydro electric power plant supplied electricity to both states of AP and Telangana. There’s lot to see at the damn and vantage points are many. It gets better if the gates are open. Awesome pics to click too. Worth the drive.!
