#17 of 18 in Nature in Bengaluru
Thippagondanahalli Reservoir, also known as T G Halli Dam or Chamarajsagar, is located at the confluence of the Arkavathy and Kumudavathi rivers, 35 km west of Bangalore, India. It is used by the Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) as a major source of drinking water for western Bangalore. The lake is a man-made reservoir, created by the building of a dam which was inaugurated in 1933. Bharath Rathna Sir M Visvesvaraya supervised the construction work.
In the summer of 2007, the lack of rain in the watershed for the reservoir, along with use of the water for the city ran the lake almost dry.
Thippagondanahalli is also popular recreation location, especially during summer months. It is located on Magadi road. Best time to visit this place is September to February.
There is one more dam at Manchanabele in Arkavathy downstream.
