Krishnagiri dam


To escape from the city mundane life, my constant search for new places lead to this dam. Not far from Bangalore, it is located at a distance of around 100 km. Definitely a good place to send a day during the weekend. One has to take House road to reach here. Road conditions are also pretty decent. 

This dam is built on the Thenpennai river surrounded by rocky hills.

The dam has a park adjacent to it where kids can play around. Well surprisingly Google Map directed us to a place that was far from the dam entry point. But this mistakes took us to almost a fairy land. Meandering street covered by shady trees running by the dam, was truly a mesmerising sight.

And one must not miss fresh fish fries, that is sold right outside the dam is truly lip smacking. Do not bother much about the hygiene. Some food are better left without hygiene. 

You can also buy fresh fishes from the local fisher men at dirt cheap prices. I got myself 3 KGS of fishes for just Rs 150. Live and fresh, fishes surely couldn’t get  better. Pay some extra and they will even clean it for you. What more can you probably ask for.

All together it is definitely worth a visit on a lazy weekend.

A software engineer by profession and a traveler and foodie by heart. Having traveled ever since childhood it has become a part of me now. So when ever I happen to get a chance I pack my bag and am on the roads. Being blessed with a super tolerant husband who gives into my whim of traveling, we do spend most of our savings on it. Well I do not exactly regret and neither does my husband complain.. Cooking is something I started doing after I left home for job. To be frank I was not such a cook when I started but years down the line I did start enjoying cooking. Picking up recipes from around the world is one of my passion though being a true at heart Bengali, I still love cooking Bengali food.
