Hemavathy Dam: A majestic picnic spot
Hemavathy dam offers a beautiful view to the visitors. The sight is more attractive when the gates of the reservoir are open and the water gushes down in a lovely manner. There is a garden covered in green grass right next to the dam which enhances the beauty of the location. The garden is often used by the locales as a picnic spot. An early morning visit to the dam offers a wonderful sight of various water birds coming to the reservoir.
The temples of Paravasudeva and Yoganarasimha are located near the dam and are popular tourist attractions of the area. The best time to visit the dam is during the months of October to March, when there is more water in the dam.
