We visited KRS after long time With lot of expectations. But it has disappointed us with outdated fountains and improper maintenance of gardens. It is a mere waste of money and time

Usually, evenings are overcrowded.Hence, its a good option to view the dam early morning or early afternoon. Nothing much to explore but one time visit should be okay. Monsoons are best as you can see the dam in full force.

The dam site is bestowed with colorful, stunning and even illuminated gardens, musical fountains and water bodies. KRS Dam presents enchanting beauty throughout the year, the best time to visit Krishna Raja Sagara Dam (KRS Dam) is during and after the monsoon season.

Common people are not allowed on the dam, can see from Vrindravan garden sit. Can travel to 8 km to Gopalaswamy templ, can see back water but not impressive, as there is not much water , may be due to summer.

We were there on Aug. 18, 2018 when the authorities have opened all the gates to let the water level lower in the dam. It was an awesome sight. Rare to see. Encourage everyone to make a visit and see this rare scene
