This place is in "Mandya District". A dam has been constructed across river Kaveri that originates from "Bhagamandala" in Kodagu district and is used for irrigation purposes. This project was dreamt by "Krishnaraja Wodeyar the fourth" and brought "Sir M. Vishweshvariah" from Bombay government and took him as Chief Engineer for Mysore State. This is situated at a distance of about 12kms to the north-west of Mysore. The dam was built keeping in view of a constant supply of water for electric installation at shivanasamundram which was put up in 1902, and to have adequate supply of water for summer crop.
