This artificial tank was built in the year 1882 under the administration of Colonel Richard Hieram Sankey of the Madras Sappers Regiment. This tank was built in order to cater the water supply demands throughout Bangalore City at that time. It was also called Gandhadhakotikere at that time as the Government Sandalwood Depot was situated near it.
