An engineering delight

The dam was built across river Kaveri in 1924. If you are in the area drive by and get some pictures from the bridge across. Access to the main dam is not allowed any more.

A great construction by M. Vishvesvraiya on river kaveri during 1924 (near a 100 yrs), near Vrindavan garden. The place has become historical now. But still the dam is standing tall.
