Sangama is a unique place where Arkavati merges with Kaveri. From this point onwards, about 3.5 kilometers downstream, the river Kaveri flows through a deep and narrow gorge. Translated as 'goat's leap' from Kannada, this name was given to this place after an incident which is believed to have been witnessed by herdsmen in that area a long time ago. It is said that a goat was being chased by a tiger and in order to save its life, the goat leapt from one side of the gorge and managed to cross over the raging river below, whereas the tiger did not attempt to replicate this feat, and abandoned the chase. The point where the goat leapt has widened since then from erosion caused by the river Cauvery. Today, this place offers itself as an important weekend destination from Bangalore and a famous picnic spot.
