Kabini Dam is located in Mysore District, in the South-Western Indian State of Karnataka. It is built on River Kabini, which is a major tributary of River Cauvery in Southern India. The dam forms an enormous reservoir called the Kabini Reservoir near the town of Sargur and is at a distance of about 60 kilometres from Mysore. The location is picturesque with lush green surroundings and the pristine river water flowing serenely towards its destination. Visitors often come here to experience peace; hence the reservoir is a preferred picnic spot for locals. Many travellers are engineering enthusiasts who love exploring structures across the globe and never miss a chance to visit this engineering marvel in South-West India.
Kabini Dam was built in 1974 on River Kabini and is a tourist attraction for the enthralling nature that surrounds the structure. One can explore the dam, the flora and fauna and the river valley and immerse in its serene beauty. The dense forests around are home to a variety of birds, making the location an apt place for bird watching. This area was a hotspot for hunting for Maharajas and British Officers during the Colonial era. The dam, today, is a significant source of water for the Government of Karnataka and helps them supply ample quantity of water to over 20 villages in the state.
