This Nagarjuna dam is under Srisailam dam. And after then Prakasham barrage.


The two rivers Krishna and Tungbhadra are mixing at Sanghamewsara village near at Kurnool Town. From there the Krishna water flows in to the Srisailam dam.

Nagarjuna Sagar is in south India. It is located at a distance of 150 km from Hyderabad, is one of the most prominent Buddhist centers and attractive tourist spots in Andhra Pradesh

This Krishna River is one of the longest rivers of India about 1300 km in length. It originates from Mahabaleswaram. It is in Maharashtra state in the west and the end Bay of Bengal at Hamasaladeevi in Andhra Pradesh on the east coast.

This great dam is on Krishna River between Nalgonda Guntur districts in Andhra Pradesh south India. Krishna River flows from eastern gats to Western Ghats Bay of Bengal in the end.

It is the tallest and largest masonry dam in the world. The Nagarjuna Dam irrigates over 10 lakh acres. This mighty dam is 124m high and 1-km long. It is built across the river Krishna and has one of the largest networks of canal systems.

Tourism Department is planning to further promote attraction tourism place. Sprawling over a 60,000 sq km; Nagarjuna Lake is the only medium to reach Nagarjuna Konda Island, where ancient artifacts are kept in a museum. Artifacts were dug out during the excavations of a Buddhist site. A boat ride would take you to the island, a place with the most beautiful landscape. About 11 kilometers from the Nagarjuna Sagar Dam are the Ethipothala Waterfalls on the Chadravanka River, a tributary of the Krishna. In absolutely scenic surroundings, you can marvel at the shimmering water as it cascades down 70 feet into a lagoon.

It was a valley in the Nallamalla range of the Eastern Ghats with civilizations dating back to thousands of years. Recorded history, however, assigns the first signs to the later Satavahanas and subsequently the Ikshvakus in the third century. The Sriparvata and Vijayapuri of yore were really temples where the famous savant and Buddhist disciple Acharya Nagarjuna preached the message of Tathagata.

A good appearance place is to the excursion.
