Have you ever felt rejuvenated by visiting dams on a clear, sunny day? If so, you might want to check out Krishnagiri dam, a picturesque reservoir situated in the Krishnagiri district of Tamil Nadu.

If you're travelling to Krishnagiri, you might want to check out the Krishnagiri Dam, also known as the Krishnagiri Reservoir Project (KRP) Dam. This dam has been providing irrigation to hundreds of acres of land in the area since 1957, when it was opened by the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, K. Kamaraj. The dam is situated 7 km away from Krishnagiri, roughly halfway between Dharmapuri and Krishnagiri. Stretching across the Thenpennai River the dam offers a picturesque and refreshing view.

As a traveller, you may want to consider visiting a park that is located close to the dam. This park offers a great space for both older individuals and young children to enjoy some quality time together. The park opens at 08:00 a.m. and closes at 05:00 p.m.  The ticket fare is Rs.5 per person. There is a parking area nearby for both two-wheelers and four-wheelers. Monkeys can be found all over the park. The park contains a jogger's route, fountains, a lawn, and a children's play area. Any time of the year is a good time to visit the KRP Dam and the park. The park is accessible every day of the week.
