"The dam is enormous; you can see it at the top of a short walk to the viewing point where you look out at the flood plain which looks like a small sea. Some interesting exhibits about the place, and immediately adjacent is a small botanical garden that apparently features an outstanding musical fou..."ntain display. I was there to early to witness the fountains themselves but I did have a good time talking to group after group of young Indian children who were fascinated to speak English to the passing Caucasian tourist.
This place is worth a look, a nice respite from the congestion and traffic of Hospet and the dusty (if fascinating) ruins of Hampi.

"But nevertheless a great place to spend an evening. The reservoir is huge and beautiful, and you can see far away town lights at the other end. There is also a large garden on this side of the dam, with an illuminated disco fountain and aquarium. Aquarium isn't maintained so well, but not bad either...". Even though the main areas are clean, I could see a garbage dump at one end of the dam. I could also see people littering the peanut and ice cream wraps at will. The canteen has an old time speaker blaring old songs, but with jarring sound; but that gave me a nostalgic feeling. The bhajji from the canteen was so bad that we couldn't have more than a bite before dumping it in one of the available trash cans.
