It is one of the major reservoirs which supplies water to 60% of the City (Bangalore). it is built between two mountains, most of the time there will be a restriction to visit this place.

Not to be prejudiced by the recent tragedy of drowning (I had visited it earlier than that), it's is a decent day out to the vast man-made T.G. reservoir. But it's polluted, no good facilities around for family.

The prefix reservoir has to edited out of the name of this place. since there is no water, and has not been any water for the past two years, the place is completely dry and looks like the ruins of a place.

Thippegondanahalli Dam is the main water source for Bengaluru. Around 40 kms from Bengaluru,it is a good day outing,but the place is devoid of basic amenities & lacks hygiene. Carrying own food is advisable.
