The dam is built crosswise over Kaveri River, in Mandya District close to provincial Mysore in Karnataka state, India. There is a fancy enclosure joined to the dam, called Brindavan Gardens. The dam was constructed crosswise over waterway Kaveri, the nurturing stream for the Mysore and Mandya regions, in 1924. Apart from being the primary wellspring of water for watering system in the mostly populated Mysore and Mandya, the water supply is the principle wellspring of drinking water for all of Mysore city and practically the entire of Bangalore city, the capital of the state of Karnataka.
