Constructed by the Karnataka State Government in 1964, The Linganamakki Dam is a 2.4 km long structure stretching across the Sharavathi river. Situated about 6 kms from Jog Falls, the Dam is located in the Sagara taluk of the state. The Dam receives water mainly from rainfall and also from the Chakra and Savahaklu reservoirs, which are linked to the Linganamakki Dam through a canal. When the Dam's sluice gates are closed, the Jog Falls get reduced to a mere trickle. However, they become magnificant once the gates are opened. The Dam, being quite large in size, offers a breathtaking view.
