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

The Dam is 30 to 40 kms from the city. Its better to take a cab from the city to visit this dam. The Dam is a must visit, if you like water fountains.
