Well maintained gardens and a readily available mini bus to take you up to the dam and gardens. It was disappointing and sad that there was very little water in the dam and river, thanks to the current heat wave and drought.

Although the View of the dam is beautiful the bus service which takes us up and down the hill is pathetic. There are two levels. One which takes us to the Dam and another which is at a higher level. Please don't take the bus. The Bus service is not regular and you might be stranded till the bus arrives.... More

Well maintained. Cleanliness may be improved in the dam area specially near the light house. Walking path can be improved. Guidance is very good. Transportation is available to the top. Fare is reasonable. Sight seeing - worth visiting, Music fountain is not working because of lack of water in the dam.

Gives a good view of the dam. Garden is nice but nothing great. Accessibility for senior citizens is a problem. You have to walk a lot

My original plan was a trip to Hampi. However, the receptionist at our hotel suggested us to go for musical fountain show at Tungabhadra dam. We had reached Hospet by 3 pm and had some time in the evening. It was wonderful to see Tungabhadra dam which I had read about long time back in my school days. Two tributaries... More
