Chikkaballapura: After days of continuous heavy rainfall, the Srinivasa Sagara Dam in Chikkaballapur Taluk has reached its maximum capacity and is now overflowing with a remarkable volume of water. With the reservoir’s water level rising 80 feet above ground level, the cascading waterfalls present a captivating and awe-inspiring spectacle that has left observers enchanted.
The news of the Srinivasa Sagara Reservoir reaching its full capacity and spilling over has sparked excitement among residents, particularly those from Bengaluru, the capital city. Against the backdrop of the Karnataka Bandh, people are thrilled and converging at the Srinivasa Sagara Reservoir to witness this spectacular event in person. Amidst the awe-inspiring natural display, visitors are also drawn to the Adiyogi statue situated at the foothills of Nandi Hills, established by the Isha Foundation, in close proximity to the reservoir. The area surrounding the reservoir has transformed into a lively gathering spot, where people are savoring the view of the cascading waterfalls.
Nevertheless, it’s crucial to remain cautious around the overflowing reservoir. Unfortunately, similar circumstances in the past have led to accidents, including a tragic incident in which three young men lost their lives due to drowning. Recognizing this risk, the Chikkaballapur rural station police have heightened safety measures to protect visitors and prevent any unfortunate incidents in the vicinity of the reservoir.
